    Default 426(RCAF) Sqdn Ocotber 1943

    I have 1354131, Sergeant (Air Gunner), Desmond Owen COLLEN as in 426 (RCAF) Sqdn. He died on 22nd October 1943. Buried in his home village of Isleham, I was wondering if this is a case of a shot up plane bringing it's dead/injured crew home to Linton on Ouse. The previous day there was a 426 aircraft badly shot up on a Liepzig raid, pilot got CGM. Grabbing at straws here.

    Thanks Col, don't know how you do it. I was put off the scent by CWGC having Desmond with 426 (RCAF) Sqdn when it seems from this he was 427 Sqdn
