    Default Sgt. Funnell J.V., 250 Sqn.RAF, Kittyhawk IV FX793

    no I am looking for information bout the pilot Sgt. J.V. Funnell of 250 Sqn. RAF crashed in Italy on December 2, 1944 durin a bombing of the railway lines between Rovigo and Ferrara. I found his plane and the most important fragments will be exposed at the airport of Aguscello, Ferrara.
    Can anybody give me information about the pilot? Unfortunately I did not find anything on the internet. I also wrote to all the abilities of his native country bearing the same surname, but one answered me.

    Thanks.
