    Default A C Thompson, 77 squadron and Stalag 357

    Guys,

    A C Thompson, POW No 12752, l beleive is the member of the crew of Whitley, N1384 KN-?, when it was lost on 21st May 1940 whilst on a raid on Cambrai. This aircraft was reported to have forced landed near Abbeville (Somme), France and except for Sgt A C Thompson, the crew soon returned to Driffield and resumed their operational duties.

    I think this crew member is actually listed in Bill's Books as Thomas but l think it is the same guy, but his Liberation Questionaire is evading me at the moment.

    On the same aircraft, AC1 T B Kennedy is reported as AC1 T B Kenny.

    Any help guys would be great.

    Regards,

    Nick

    He is not in "Footprints" as either Thomas or Thompson.

    Regards,

    John.

    A quick search through the book on Amazon doesn't seem to throw much light on him but there are several volumes, so I may have missed something.
