    Default Sgt. Kirk Sadler Thompson, 214 Squadron and Stalag 357

    Morning Guys,

    Kirk Sadler Thompson, POW No. 309, was aboard a 214 Squadron Wellington, L7843 BU-?, which was lost on 28th September 1940. He came from Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I have the crew and their fates but little else.

    Sgt Sambrook was reported to have died on 30th September.

    As l say, l have the usual, can anyone give me any further details.

    Regards,

    Nick

    Default Wellington L7843

    Hi Nick

    If you Google 'Wellington L7843' there's a link to a post which I put here on RAF Commands a while ago about this loss. Don't know if that helps at all.

    Have you checked the Liberation Questionnaires at Kew? There's your excuse for a visit!

    Regards

    Ian

    Thanks Ian,

    Always looking for the story behind the facts, so this helps. I am affraid l don't need an excuse to go to Kew.

    In Thompson's liberation Questionaire, he reported being captured at Namur, Belgium on 28th September 1940.

    Regards,

    Nick
