    Default Mosquito DZ553 Missing 540 Sqdn RAF

    Hi
    http://www.airhistory.org.uk/dh/_DH9...odn%20list.txt
    Mosquito FBIV DZ553 540Sqdn Missing on PR sortie from Malta 29.7.43
    Can anyone help determine the names of the crew Mosquito DZ553?
    A little mystery. Geoff's and CWGC do not give answer. Crew (probably) POW?
    Thank you in advance
    Pavel

    Hi,
    MJF Bowyer in "Mosquito" has DZ553 as a PRIV operated from June 1943 by 60 Sqn SAAF. First op on 11th July over Venice, Pola and Trieste from Ariana. Shot down with 60 Sqn on its 7th sortie.
    No mention of crew.
    cheers Peter

    Hi Peter
    Thank you very much for surprising information.
    I'll look for the crew of 60 Sqdn SAAF.
    Kind Regards Pavel

    Nothing in '85 years of SAAF' - Winston Brent which would include RAF members of the Squadron
