    Default F/Sgt Ernest WILCOX 150 Sqdn died 28 May 1941

    One for Col. I suspect. I seem to have most details of this crash on return from Boulogne and the makeup of the crew EXCEPT who did what.
    Sgt Huggett and Sgt Pereira I have seen as pilot, Sgt Jarvis listed as observer, Sgt Gardiner as a gunner together with the survivor, WO Edmunds. I cannot seem to find
    the position of my man, F/Sgt Ernest Burton WILCOX.
    Anyone got any ideas where to look now.

    Thanks on advance

    Tony

    Thanks for that< I did spot that "trade" was not aboard but wasn't sure of the others. Where did you spot his headstone. Never thought of that route.

    Thanks again
