    Default Halifax L9502 (35 Squadron)

    Does anyone have any details on the loss of this aircraft on 7th / 8th July 1941 (cause / location) or any details on where the crew were captured / imprisoned:

    P Langmead POW
    WT Hogan POW
    Roberts POW
    RF Jackson POW (Wounded)
    Cattran POW (Wounded)
    K Hartland POW
    FH (FM) Brown POW

    There is a thread relating to Roberts and Cattran http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...35-Sqn-in-1941

    Does Hogan's Liberation Questionnaire show his service number and forenames?

    He'll be in the appropriate section of AIR 78. Just download and search - not a problem! My download speed is currently (courtesy of BT) just over 1.5Mbps - would take a month to download that bit of Air 78!!!

    Hello

    Peter Langmead, 86629, born 4/4/19, farmer, Wicks farm, Yapton, Arundel, Sussex. joined 6/6/39.

    William Troy Hogan, 1051895, born 18/9/17, film distributor, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, joined 4/6/40.

    Sorry, PoW questionnaires don't give details about circumstances of loss. But may you can try to trace families with the limited details given above... Good luck.
