    He's also mentioned in the second volume of Thomas and Shores' 2nd Tactical Air Force. On January 1st 1945 he claimed 2 FW190s destroyed west of Ghent at 10.00 hours, before belly landing after running out of fuel in Spitfire MJ888 'E' of 308 Squadron.

    Further to my reply, he's got an entry in 'Those Other Eagles' by Christopher Shores, page 563. Originally served in the Army, gaining a KW for action in the Western Desert in the defence of Tobruk. Joined the R.A.F. in 1943, training in the UK and served with 61 O.T.U., then to 1 T.E.U. in June 1944, and to 308 Sqn in August 1944. Awarded three bars to his KW.

    The 2 FW-190s in Spitfire IX MJ888 ZF-E were his only claims.

    Regards

    Simon
