    Default John Sowerbutts (RAF No. 124549.)

    I have been looking up John Sowerbutts (RAF No. 124549.)

    He was a sergeant but came as a P/O to 16 Squadron from No.5 AFU Ternhill on 7/7/42.

    I found this reference to a Sergeant Sowerbutts at www.combatreform.org/airrecon.htm.....

    “The Mosquito performed its first sortie in September 1941. On 18 September, Squadron Leader Rupert Clerke and his observer, Sergeant Sowerbutts, of the RAF Number 1 PRU took off in a Mosquito PR.I on a mission to Southern France….”

    Does anyone know if this is the same person?

    Cheers Motherbird

    Hi Motherbird,

    Not the same individual.

    The Sowerbutts with 1 PRU was Henry Alfred SOWERBUTTS, DFC (147006). He never remustered as a pilot.

    Best Regards
