    Default 657556 F/S Arnold Allsop (14) 26/06/44.

    Hello Everyone.

    I'm new to this website, but was reading up and trying to find out more about me Uncle, named above, who was killed when shot down in his plane in 1944 over Sardinia.

    I noticed a post from 2005 by Malcolm Bryan asking for more information on my Uncle, which I do have, if Malcolm would like to get in touch, I can share this.

    Thankyou, Trevor Wilson
