    Default Spitfire W3117 340 Sqn 22 June 1943

    Spitfire W3117 of 340 Sqn, based at Drem, suffered an engine failure and crashed 2 miles NE of East Fortune airfield on an attempted forced-landing which killed the pilot, Sgt Rosa. I am seeking details of Sgt Rosa, who was presumably French. Can anyone assist please?
