    Utteridge was a P.O.W. with my father. I would like to know more about him, this is what I have.

    Utteridge, Robert James. 13 Harpenden Road, W. Norwood, SE 27 LAC 142 Squadron Battle shot down 14 October 1940 at Rouen on an operation to Foret de Gault.

    536916 Leading Aircraftman Robert James Utteridge DFM, 150 Squadron RAF. Gazetted 16/8/1940 Wireless Operator/Air Gunner. Air 2/8885 Whilst acting as Air Gunner on a bombing raid on 13th June, 1940, with Flt Lt Hewson as pilot, he shot down one Me 109, one Me 11O and disabled another Me 109. But for his airman’s skill and courage, it is probable that the aircraft would have been shot down before being able to reach the cover of the clouds. Throughout his service with the squadron, this airman has maintained a very high standard of efficiency, both in air gunnery and as a W/T operator. 27th June 1940.
