    Thanks, Paul and Henk! So there seem to be two E. Penningtons:

    1. E.D. Pennington - 42146 (PoW L3/33109). - the one I'm curious about.
    2. Edward Pennington Serial Number 77122

    Or could it be the same man, with number 77122 before his promotion?

    Regards,

    Bart

    Hi Gents,

    The No.22 Sqn Pennington was not a pilot but was the squadron gunnery officer and first appears in the ORB on 14/06/40.

    He always flew as a WOp/AG.

    Regards
    Ross

    Default from his PoW questionnaire

    hello,

    Sorry to catch up this thread with such a delay, but I'm without an internet connexion at home for about a month.

    I confirm that the Lysander pilot was Elvin Darley Pennington, 42146, from his PoW questionnaire (WO 344 series at Kew). He was born on January 3rd 1919 and commissioned in May 1939.

    He quoted his place of capture as "Abbeville 21st May 1940".

    For those interested, the other crewmember was Robert Douglas Erskine, 581506.

    Hope this helps

    Joss

    Default And after all that...

    ED Pennington was the father of a friend. He continued to serve after the war, was awarded the AFC & retired to Cornwall. His brother was a Spitfire driver.
