    Default Looking for the identity of two Air gunners 141 Sqn

    Morning,

    I'm after the full identity of two 141 Sqn's air gunners while the squadron was operating on Defiant at night at the end 1940 early 1941:

    P/O BLAIN
    Sgt NOTT

    Any idea of who they could be?

    Many thanks

    Phil

    Many thanks Peter for Blain. I checked the ORB once more and the quality I've got is not as good as it should be and for Nott it seems it is actually Mott. And as exists an air gunner named Mott, Walter H. with 141 Sqn in the book 'Men of the BoB' I can consider that the case is solved... Thanks again.

    Phil,
    That will be:-
    751134 [RAFVR Jan 1937 onwards] Flt Sgt Walter Henry MOTT Cmd Plt Off(p) RAFVR GD (139388). 14th Dec. 1942.
    unless I am very much mistaken?
