    Hi John,

    HF205

    Op: A/S Patrol, RAF Chivenor, Time up 23:32 on 29th

    Shot down by the U-415 which was itself badly damaged in the attack and had to abort it's war patrol. All, including F/O Davey of St.Georges, South Australia are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Regards
    Ross
