    Hello

    According to his PoW questionnaire (WO344 series at Kew), this No. 257 Squadron pilot was captured at Barfleur on 11th March 1944.

    Hi Joss,
    Your reply is excellent! You answered even two my threads – this one and also
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?10149-P-O-N.-Carter-257-Sqn-POW

    F.A.Carter is in the PoW list of Ross. Next "Nick“ Carter is gone…

    Hello

    Henk, indeed he was the pilot of Typhoon JR151, coded 'K' according to Fighter Command Losses.

    The book is wrong about the initial of the pilot, one of the many mistakes the series contains, as we all know.
