218 sqn / loss of Stirling III, BK712, Krefeld, mix-up or planned aliasCol Interesting and confusing with all the Turtons... One of my issues with the MRES report is that it does not mention the fact that the first CYPHER MESSAGE mentioning news from the German authorities (p. 68 og 80) of 30 Nov 1943 actually refer to the body of Helvard. If "F/O Helvard worked under the assumed name of 1438341 Sergeant Turton." how would IRCC then be able to refer to Helvard in that message, if indeed they actually did that. I recognize that the sitation could be, that the Germans referred to Turton and then the British authorities referred to Helvard. To check this one would need the original signal from the IRCC quoting the German authorities. My question regarding "normal practice" origins in the fact that I find it strange that the assumed identity was that of another living person, and not a fictive persona. The Danish pilot J Thalbitzer who became PoW in 1942 is another example of an assumed name among the Danish pilots. When in the PoW-camp he had the assumed identity of P/O Thomson to protect his family still living in Denmark. Regards Mikkel PS. I realise that my comment above might be confusing. I had located 1438341 John TURTON (129585), but my point was that he is a different man to Helvard, and does not appear to be a fictious person invented for the purpose of assumed identity. PPS. I only have the June ORB for the squadron and noticed that 129585 J Turton did not appear on the roster. ....Read More.Mikkel Plannthin on 18th April 2012 11:37:15
