    Default Sergeant L. H. B. Pearce

    Hello everybody,

    I have Sergeant ‘Len’ Leonard Hilary Borlase Pearce (RAF no. 741920 ) claiming 3 and 1 shared destroyed, 1 damaged while flying with 32 Squadron in July-August 1940. What I’ve found he was posted to 92 Squadron in October 1939 and then to 32 Squadron in early July 1940. He was killed on 9 April 1941.

    However, I also have a Sergeant L. H. B. Pearce claiming 2 shared destroyed and 1 damaged while flying with 79 Squadron in France during May 1940.

    Is this the same guy?

    If not – is there anyone with the “second” Pearce’s full name?

    Best wishes/Håkan
