    Hi Pavel,

    C/8076 comes back to a F/Lt Leonard Lawrence Holmes:

    I can confirm that C8076 was indeed Leonard Lawrence Holmes, a radar officer, who joined the RCAF on 5 May 1941 and was posted overseas 23 October 1941. Killed accidentally, 17 October 1943.

    C5640 was Herbert Stuart Croxford, another radio or radar officer, member of the RCAF from 13 June 1941 to 2 November 1945 (overseas 9 August 1941 to 17 February 1945 and again from 17 April to 26 September 1945.

    Hi Dave Hi Hugh
    Thank you very much for your help. Today is my lucky day.
    This raises new questions. As F/Lt Holmes was killed. Killed Accidentally? Which unit (Sqn)?
    Regards Pavel
