    Default Crew Update of 103 Sqn Battle L5246 Loss 9th/10th June 1940

    In Chorley the crew is just listed as S/L H Lee, Sgt D Norrington DFM and LAC Werner

    The full crew details are

    S/L Harold Gibson Lee #34061 Injured (Broken Leg) later D.F.C.,A.F.C
    Sgt Derrick Norrington DFM #580441 Later #48516
    LAC Alfred Norman Werner #544466 Later #47435

    I found this via the book "Into the Silk" by Ian Mackersey who identifies and tells Alfred Werner's story. He later became a pilot and was commissioned and became a BEA pilot

    The book quotes the loss on night of June 6th/7th (probably via Werner's log book)

    Hi Paul,

    Again thanks for the crew names. The 75 Wing ORB (AIR 26/112) records this sortie on June 9th.

    Regards,

    Martin.
