    AIR81 to the rescue once again

    AIR81/9055 Pilot Officer R O H Down, Flight Lieutenant R T R Cowper, Sergeant G W Barrowman, Sergeant R T Peat: prisoners of war; aircraft force landed near St Malo, France, Hudson AM548, 233 Squadron, 14 September 1941.

    Strangely, I was looking at Cowper's 1945 application to stay in Australia in late 1945, and its a specific scheme for former British Armed Service members. He signed it at Parafield on Oct 28th 1945. I noted that 300 Group had been there and sure enough he was posted into 238 Sqn (Dakota's) on Oct 23rd from HQ 300 Group.

    I don't suppose any one had any call to get a copy of AIR81/9055 above? I thought it strange that a man who was, and I assume only, a POW until May or June 1945, to head back into active service so quick.

    Great find Dennis. That clears up that little mystery.
