    Default W/O Arthur W. Hearndon 1318425

    I believe he was a fighter pilot with 213 Squadron and lost over Yugoslavia on 26 January 1945. The 23 year-old was from Bournemouth and Cathie, his WAAF wife, had earlier lost her uncle Norman Macritchie in the Royal Navy when he died on 29 December 1942 at HMS Sphinx.

    A/C type, circumstances of Arthur's loss and whereabouts would be appreciated.

    Hello Malcolm,

    He was lost with Mustang FB312. Better to link you with the website, from where I have the details about his loss.
