    One more question Brian:
    Attacking Bremen (N2770) and on the return leg attacked near the French coast. Should the return leg not have been far more up to the north? Why risking flying from Bremen back to UK such a long distance over enemy territory ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Default Sqn Ldr Colman

    Hi Henk

    I can't answer that at the moment - requires further investigation.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Default F/Sgt Hazelden 4jan41

    Henk, not sure if Eddie Fell made you aware of this.. but

    ...F/Sgt Hazelden died as a result of suicide at Catfoss airfield. So one to rule out for aircraft losses on that day.

    Eddie passed me his research into Catfoss incidents and Im going through them at the moment, there may be others I will add to your postings on here. He had begun some additional research into the losses and names on the memorial at Catfoss, not as detailed as his 158 Sqn info but interesting none the less.

    regards Rich

    Default For Rich,

    Yes, the info on HAZELDEN was passed on to me. Most times this kind of death is forwarded in a PM. Nevertheless thanks.
    Season greetings,
    Henk.

    Hello

    LAC (Pilot u/t) John E.D. MARRINER - 1060077 - the Andrews Newspaper Index Cards on ancestry.co.uk record that he died in a flying accident, an he's listed on the Graves Registration Report Form as being with 22 E.F.T.S., both of which would link him to Tiger Moth T5890.

    Regards

    Simon
