    Default 50 squadron crew interned in Portugal

    Hi to all,

    Tryng to identify this plane.

    Got a Escape/Evasion report about a crew that landed in the sea near Lisbon - Caparica - on the 23 June 1942.

    There where 4 men inside and the plane landed near the shore so they could walk to the beach. All where unhurt.

    The crew members are refered as part of the nš 50 squ and are F/Sgt MacGregor, Sgt Adams, Sgt Boreham and Sgt Seth.

    Hope you cann help me on this one
    best regard's

    Default Got confused

    Thanks,

    But now I'm confused. I had that aircrfat registraded but I had associated that to another 217 squ that landed in Portugal on the 16 of June.

    The crew where Sgt's Salisbury, Williams, Armstrong and Eden. They also landed on the sea. If L9826 was the flight of Mcgregor's crew, in what plane where this other's flyng?

    Hope you cann help out again.
