    Default Who can tell more about Sergeant Raymond Lambert

    During my research I came across the name Sergeant Raymond Lambert 1525044 (remembered at Runnymede panel 156). His death on 13 March 1943 is mentioned but I have not been able to link it to any accident. His body washed ashore in the north of Holland on 10 April 1940.

    CWGC website lists him as with 199 Squadron.

    Chorley's 1943 volume, page 76, has Wellington X HE519, coded EX-X, lost on an op to Essen. Aircraft was hit by flak and crash landed in the North Sea near the Dutch coast.

    Sgt D J Clifford +
    F/O C M Kitson PoW
    Sgt L M Jones +
    F/S J G Richardson RCAF +
    Sgt R Lambert +

    All those lost are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    C M Kitson was my grandad. He was a POW at Stalag luft 3. He died in the 1980s.

    I have just come across this post whilst doing some research for our family tree. I am the nephew of RAFVR Sergeant 1332298 Denis John Clifford. His younger sister is still alive and recalls meeting C M Kitson shortly after the end of the war. If there is any one who knows what happened 12/13 March 1943 I would appreciate the contact.

    Hello,

    The service file of R86416 F/Sgt Jack Graydon Richardson has a comment that Sgt Lambert's body washed ashore at Rottum-Platt.

    F/Lt Kitson was interviewed postwar and stated that the aircraft was in a spin when he baled out and believed it fell into the sea shortly after cruising the Dutch coast.

    Regards,

    Dave
