#9 (o) A.F.U. Penrhos, Nth Wales May/June 1942Hi All, I have another photo of attendees (including my father) on the above dates at Penrhos. I am hoping that forum members will be able to help in determining or adding to the service of the following airmen. I have searched the CWGC site and have some info which may or may not in some instances be correct. 1. Ted Gray RNZAF 2. Joe Whelan RAAF 3. Tom Woodhouse RAAF 4. Dan Duffy RAAF 5. Norm Cunningham RNZAF 6. Doug Simpson RAAF 7. Chips Woods RNZAF 8. Tom Caracavich RAAF 9. Max Burcher RAAF 10. Rolly White RNZAF 11. Bill Veysey RNZAF Of the above the following I have been able to source information on. 3. Tom Woodhouse RAAF may be from CWGC Flt Sgt Thomas Woodhouse 403846 died 8/11/42. 7. Chips Woods RNZAF may be from CWGC Sgt Robert Alan Francis Woods 411964 Air Gunner with 44 RAF Squadron died 30/5/43. 9. Max Burcher RAAF may be from CWGC WO Reginald Maxwell Burcher 411440 died 30/7/43. 10. Rolly White RNZAF may be from CWGC Sgt William George Henry White 41717 Air Gunner with 75 RAF Squadron died 17/12/42. 11. Bill Veysey is from CWGC Sgt William John Veysey 404583 W.Op/Air Gnr with 9 RAF Squadron died 31/1/43. Information on the circumstances surrounding his loss would be appreciated. As far as the remainder of these airmen are concerned I have been unable at this stage to find any details. It is made harder I appreciate by the fact that I only have 'Nicknames' as given by my father on the back of photo. If forum members are able to assist me I would be most grateful. Copy of the photo can be supplied if any would like to have it. Regards, Rob Jerram. ....Read More.RobJ on 13th August 2009 11:25:15
