    Hi Pavel,

    Procter or Proctor?

    LG has:
    1080367 Anthony John Charles PROCTOR (118950) P/O

    https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/...5565/page/2182

    A. J. C. PROCTER (118950) F/O

    https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/...upplement/5153

    A. J. C. PROCTER (118950) F/L 24th Jan 1944

    https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/...36351/page/537


    But he was with 235 Sqn 28.10.1944:

    Hit HR298 on take-off RAF Banff. 28th Oct 1944
    Mosquito HR298 "LA-P" of 235 sqn was struck while taxiing for take off by Mosquito HR136 "LA-R" of 235 sqn, which had just become airborne. Both crewmen in the taxiing Mosquito "P" were killed while Mosquito "R" landed safely with no injuries to the crew.

    and also 4 May 1945:

    http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/archiv...p?t-25046.html

    Did he go after the accident to 29 Sqn and after some time back to 235 Sqn?

    Regards

    Hi Mojmír
    I'm sorry for the mistake. F / O or F / Lt PROCTER is PROCTOR (sure yas)
    1080367 Anthony John Charles PROCTOR (118950) certainly not
    He was still flying at 235 Sqdn.
    Regards

    Hi Mojmir
    Thanks for the help. I very much appreciate it.
    776146 William Douglas Forbes PROCTOR (137454) looks very likely.
    Unfortunately, there is no evidence.
    Regards
    Pavel
