  1. My name is Michael CLOSE and I am the Membership Secretary of the Royal Air Forces Association Île-de-France Branch near Paris.
    I am currently trying to assist the Chairman of the Association AM FAFL in searching for information concerning aviators who were lost at sea during WW2. He particularly asked me to confirm the source of the information that you provided to Michel LATOURAILLE concerning Jacques HAZARD on the RAF Commands Forum.
    The reason for our research is that next year a monument to persons (Air Force and Civilians) missing at sea during WW2, will be erected on the Channel coast at Le Tréport, Normandy and visitors will be able to access historical information directly from a Web site through their “Smartphones” by copying the code beside the name of the missing person; hence the need for us to quote the sources of the information provided.
    I do hope that you will be able to help us.
    Many thanks.
    Kind regards,
    Michael CLOSE

    Hi Col Bruggy,

    I am writing you this message with regard to this topic: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?11051-142-Sqn-Wellington-III-DF552-6-7-5-1943

    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,

    Pieter

    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

    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,
