    Default 189 Sqd Wellington - 9th July 1943 Sank U435 looking for any crew information

    I'm searching for information on the crew who was flying the Wellington (189 Sqd) out of Far North (Gibraltor) which depth charged U435 to oblivion.

    I've got the information about U435 but would like the information about the plane and crew or any ideas on how to find it?

    Hi Dave,

    The aircraft was Wellington 'R' of 179 Sqn on patrol 1202-2247hrs the crew were as follows;

    F/O E J Fisher
    F/Sgt J Allman
    F/O W F Barker
    Sgt P G Vine
    Sgt F Jenkinson
    Sgt G T Greaves

    This was from a book called "Search,Findand Kill" by Norman Franks which I think is now out of print but you should be able to get it from a good second hand dealer. Here is its ISBN 1898697353

    Regards,

    John.
