    Default No. 10 AOS Battle N2223 crashlanding 28.10.1941

    Hi all,

    I am trying to establish more details about this accident mentioned in the ORB.
    Also I am interested in the surviving crew:
    pilot Sgt G. B. F. Norman - I suppose he survived WWII as no record in CWGC, having also problem to identify him in Air 78 - the closest hit is 932 087 Geoffrey Percy Frederick Norman
    two polish Observers u/t: P/O Rojek a P/O Slomski.
    I was able to identify the first one as P-0358 P/O Józef Rojek (thanks to the book Krzystek, T. J.: Polskie siły powietrzne w Wielkiej Brytanii w latach 1940-1947) but no luck with the second one so I suppose there could be a typo in him surname? Any ideas?

    TIA

    Pavel

    The Polish Air Force List for June 1941 gives two possibles in the GD branch:

    P-0345 P/O Stanislaw Slominski, seniority 1-10-1938
    P-0376 P/O Zygmunt Slomski, seniority 1-8-1939

    Cross referencing with Krzystek's online list I see the second was a pilot but Slominski is given as an Observer (http://listakrzystka.pl/en/?p=263840).

    I forgot to check the August 1941 list, it gives the same two names under Pilot Officers in GD.
