  1. Hello Dennis - I replied to a post you made in Jan 2013 already, but thought I would also send a message here - not entirely sure how this forum works yet…
    At any rate, I am the granddaughter of the pilot of the Hudson bomber that crashed in Halifax Harbour in Dec 1942. His name was John Henry Prentice. You mentioned that you had come across a scanned news clipping with the details. My family always had a yellowed copy of the news clipping but in recent years, it has gone missing. I tried searching on Ancestry but came up empty handed. I wondered if you might share some tips on how you found that article, or if you had a link I could use. I have ordered a copy of Ocean Bridge, as you referenced that book in your post. Regards, Jean MacFarlane

    I saw your name on a thread about my father Sqn Ldr Lionel Cohen, who landed a Hudson out of fuel on a beach in Donegal on 5 May 1942. I've only joined this site today, to research his death two months later while commanding No 150 Sqn, shot down with his crew over Pas-de-Calais on the way back from Saarbrucken on the night of 29/30 July 42. I'd like to contact those who like you were posting about him in 2007, as one of them was I believe related to his Wop/AG.

    Being new to the site I'm not sure how you get to contact me back, but you could email me if you like on mikeshaw208@gmail.com.

    I've also tried to contact Hugh Halliday who like you came up on my Google serch which let me to RAFCommands. Incidentally I'm ex-RAF myself, with 2 tours each on Hunters and Harriers.

    Best wishes
