    Steve,

    He was in Spitfire II, P7890, during Circus 55 to Mazingarbe.

    Hello Michal,

    thank you for the answer.

    This suggests that Tucker got lost over the sea and was washed ashore on the german coast in the vicinity of the frisian islands.

    regards

    I am Michael Duncan Tucker's great-nephew and am willing to share what little information I know about my great uncle with anyone who is interested. I am also very keen to learn more from anyone who may know more than me!

    Apart from what Michal has already told us, I have arranged the following map of the events of Circus 55 on 21st July 1941:

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=107219320747574346441. 00048a3279c5ca6a164b4&ll=51.740636,1.307373&spn=3. 306526,9.700928&z=7

    I've got another lead or two: The following kills were scored by the Luftwaffe on the evening of the relevant date. I don't know if the list is exhaustive or not:

    Hptm. Hans Hahn (#33/108) - Stab III./J.G. 26 - Spitfire - 20:45 - Watten
    Fw. GŁnther Seeger (#9/56) - Stab/J.G. 2 - Spitfire - 20:45 - 5 km SE Boulogne
    Uffz. Gottfried Dietze (#1) - 2./J.G. 26 - Spitfire - 21:00 - SW Cap Gris Nez

    Can anyone shed any light on which of these fallen Spitfires may have been being flown by my great uncle?

    Thanks for any help.

    Owen Tucker
