    Default Sgt P.M.Brown RCAF

    Hi All,

    Sgt P.M.Brown R/9740 RCAF

    Would anyone happen to have any info on this Canadian. He was involved in an accident at Tiree in Beaufort EK973 on 21 April 43 where his hands and face were severely burned. The aircraft was 5 OTU and I have all the details needed on this and other crew members, but can`t find anything on Brown. I can`t find him in Geoff`s list so think he survived the war, but was perhaps invalided out due to injuries?

    Any help would be great appreciated. Even his Christian name would be a start.

    Regards
    DAve

    Have just noticed in the Navigators service file that Sgt P.M.Brown`s number was R/97040 not R/9740 as per form 765.

    Were any of the others Candaian and badly injured or killed? The names might appear in Canadian Casualty lists as injured?

    That said I searched Flight global for P. M. Brown's but none showed up.

    Hi,

    One P.M. Brown of Toronto graduated from No. 1 Bombing and Gunnery School (Jarvis, Ontario) on July 31, 1942 but I can't tell if he's the man you're looking for ("JARVIS GRADUATES - ANOTHER CLASS OF AIRMEN GRADUATED TODAY" in The Globe and Mail, August 1, 1942).

    Cheers,

    Fox.

    Thanks Fox,

    This sounds very much like the same airman, but of course without a service number difficult to day for certain. Thanks for your help. Dave
