Hello,

I am looking for the full name, service number and trade (if not already indicated) of the following airmen, most of them RAF:

W/O II R.A. Scott (RCAF) - ? - Pilot
Sgt T.S. Harries - 1153261 - Flight Engineer
F/S A. Manson - 1371026 - Navigator
Sgt D.H. Owen - 1237257 - Air Bomber
Sgt J.G.A. Trusty - ? - Dispatcher *

These men were serving with 138 Sqn when their Halifax crashed in France on 12 August 1943. All of them were captured or evaded while the other crewmen were KIA (buried in Ecorcei, Normandy, France).


P/O S.E. Stapley - 134383 - ?
Sgt W.H.B. Bilton - ? - ? (not sure if he was RAF or other)
Sgt H. Lewis - 550574 - ?

These men were serving with 10 Sqn in 1943 when their Halifax crashed on 15 September 1943. All of them were captured or evaded while the other crewmen were KIA (buried in Ecorcei, Normandy, France).

Please let me know if you can help,

Regards,

Fox.

* PS: I don't know what 'Dispatcher' corresponds to. What was his role in the aircraft? Does any trade badge corresponds to the post?
