    Hi Col Bruggy,

    I am writing you this message with regard to this topic:

    I assume you have been in touch with Harry Venning? Are you still in touch with any of his relatives? I am in touch with another member of this crew. We might have information which is interesting for both families or both of us. I would very much like to get in touch with you about this.

    I am looking forward hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

  2. Hello Col Bruggy,I am interested with your reply on this post


    Lately, i am interested on the plane that crashed in Lake near ambarawa. as i doing research on this perticular plane, i stumbled upon your reply. i found thar your reply on the post i mention above is well informed and detailed. could you please enlighten me on which source it mentioned?

    btw, in my native language resources (indonesian), i can only found that the plane crashed down the lake and now is still hidden beneath the lake. as you mention the coordinate, i convert it on google maps and its about 7km east of rawa pening lake

    Hi Col

    Many thanks once again for providing information - you invariably have an answer to my many queries.

    I wish to acknowledge my gratitude by offering you a signed copy of my latest book - MARYLANDS OVER MALTA. I'm still awaiting copies from the publisher but they should be with me soon.

    Let me have your address and I'll pop a copy in the mail (I'll need to take out a mortgage!!)

    Cheers and thanks

    Dear Col, (not quite sure how to address you or post a message?!) I wonder if you have any information regarding my Grandfather, Warrant Officer A. R. Chapman RAF No. 1290786, who was a rear air gunner? I believe that his plane ditched into the Bay of Biscay (Squadron 77?) in 1940 and that he and his crew were picked up by a French trawler and handed over to the Germans. He then spent a few years in Stalag Viiib, Camp 344, POW No. 26830. Regards, Victoria

    Thank you Col for the info re a link to flight casualties 23-24/6/1944. I've tried it a few times but it keeps jumping to another thread about a Canadian airman Morgon!
    Can you help with this please?
    Rehards, Sue

    Thanks for the additional information on Symons (204 Sqn).
    What a tragic few months for his wife, mother and family.

    Thank you so much for your post regarding:
    COMFORT, William Simpson Flight Sergeant RAF No.1342606 and ROBARTS, Eugene Lieutenant SAAF No.206857V.
    Eugene Robarts was my Grandfather. My mother (who was born 2 month before Eugene was killed) still has his photo album with pictures of aeroplanes, men in uniform, his logbooks and a few other things.

    The story relayed by Comfort matches a letter written to my Grandmother regarding the incident (which is also in the box).
    Coming across this post, which happened quite by accident, has had a profound impact on myself and my mother,

    Hello Col,
    It's me, Henk Welting from Holland with a question on the Australian National Archives.
    Didn't know up to today that also the ORB's were digitised, f.i. A9186 8 for 3 RAAF Sqn.
    What are the Series Numbers (Item Control Symbols) for the other RAAF ORB's ? If known to you please could you mail me (by means of this forum or a PM at my h.weltingATupcmailDOTnl - replace AT and DOT by the obvious).
    Regards and thanks in advance for your help.
