F/L Geoffrey Charles Matheson 39363Gents thanks for your contributions. I am tending towards the view that the 30 September entry is indeed a duplication of that of the 30 August. Steve's biog. of Matheson makes no mention of it. P9492 at Denham was the a/c of 102960 I Hutchinson, who was injured. John Foreman's reliable FCWD notes just the one Cat E incident for 222S on 30th September, with one pilot wounded. However Denham seems a long way from the action in which, at the time of this incident; early afternoon, the raiders were engaged mostly over Kent and SE London. Hornchurch Scramble describes Hutchinson's loss as follows, "was forced to bale out of his Spitfire, when his fuel tank was hit by machine gun fire, but from where it came he had no idea. He landed safely but was badly burned about the face and hands, as well as heavily bruised after hitting the tail of the a/c whilst baling out. He played no further part in the BoB." regards DaveW ....Read More.davew on 16th December 2009 07:39:53
Liberator EW303 lost off Scotland on 16 April 1945Hallo Laurent, In the book on 53 Squadron 'UNITED IN EFFORT' by Jock Manson he states the two passengers were WAAFs. They were LACW Winifred Hutchison and LACW M. MacLean. Both were found by a rescue boat but Hutchison was dead. She was 24 and from Gateshead in England. Her service number was 462814. MacLean was badly injured but survived. The book gives the formers name as Hutchinson, but the CWGC uses Hutchison. Hope this helps, Martin Gleeson. ....Read More.Martin Gleeson on 16th April 2012 08:16:10
Manchester L7427 lost 08/.09.04.1942Hello, After a long search we finally found the crash site. The Avro Manchester L7427, 83 Squadron has crashed in the small town Ermke near Lastrup-Cloppenburg. 2 years ago a witness told me about a crew member which knocked on his door at night in the small town Molbergen. My witness told of his injuries. An interesting story. It was the co.pilot Peter Anthony Lovegroove. P.A.Lovegroove died in captivity 12 Nov. 1942. My witness remembered the name.He never forgot the name! The Manchester was shot down from Fw. Gerhard Goerke I./NJG3 00.49. Now I'm searching for alive family members, photos of the crew.

Looking for more Canadian relatives of RCAF dead to call and ask for DNA samples, Volker? More body parts stashed away? Just what was that reason you desperately needed to find the kin of F/Lts McGrath and Bissell? And as you are notorious in Ottawa for your disgusting activities please be advised that this post, unless and until, closed/deleted by Ross, has been reported to Laurel. And you and your equally disgusting partner, Werner Oeltjebruns, know who I am speaking about. She will receive this link momentarily. As well as a copy n paste of the text contained herein. Despite efforts by our own Dennis Burke to get you to see the light on what you did to the niece of F/Lt McGrath, you carried on, editing posts. I arranged to have the thread on the Canada at War forum locked because a friend of mine is a moderator there. Mea culpa. And you know that when members here click on these links your disgusting, filthy behaviour will be exposed. I also phoned the Canadian Military Attache in Berlin about this when it first happened. He wasn't too thrilled either. Dennis Burke told you on numerous forums that what you were doing was beyond the pale. He was being nice. So if you want to know how Laurel and her team got on to you so fast? Again, mea culpa. We have members here who lost their fathers. Bodies which have never been found. How dare you come in here and ask our members to find these families so you can ask for DNA samples? James, you would be well advised to remove any offer of help lest the superb research you, Peter Mayo, Marilyn Jeffers Walton and all the others into the List be connected with t ....Read More.alieneyes on 18th August 2013 10:49:32
F O Charles Sydney DuncanHello There's no Duncan listed in the list of aircrew who flew during the Battle of Britain, in Kenneth G. WYNN's book, which has been largely used as source for websites and other books. If, like Peter suggests, he joined in April or May 1940, it's rather short to be a trained fighter pilot in order to be an operational pilot during the Battle of Britain. Another possibility is that he could have flown in the time frame of the BoB, but in Bomber Command, or in Coastal Command. But here again, it'd be a very training syllabus. Col's link gives excellent détails and Peter's advice about the Service Record will give precise dates, units he went through, etc... Then you can use open archives to rebuild his tour of operations, by accessing No. 37 Squadron Operations Record Book at the National Archives, in Kew, London. Either directly by yourself, on a microfilm reader, or you can buy it online, but it could be very expensive, if he served for a long period of time, as you'll have to buy one month by one month, the form 540 (monthly résumé) and the form 541 (daily résumé). There's a very short entry about the loss of this crew is "Wise without eyes" by Kevin Mears, page 227 : "The final operation of the month wason the 24th when twelve aircraft visited the Steyr aircraft factory. The aircraft of F/Sgt Langley and crew, F/O Duncan, and Sgts Hutchinson, Jeavons and Topple failed to return from this operation". Hope this helps Joss ....Read More.jossleclercq on 20th April 2017 01:31:25
