    W/C John Jeudwine 84 Sqn 1942

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi guys

    A dozen RAAF/RAF aircrew escaped by sea from Java to Australia March/April 1942, led by W/C Jeudwine.

    I have read that soon after arrival in Australia, Jeudwine returned to Java aboard a USN submarine to search for survivors, but none was found.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Cheers
    Brian

    Hi Brian,


    „the US submarine STURGEON made a voyage to Java in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue other members of the Squadron left behind at Scorpion Cove.“

    „An American submarine sent at once to Java found no sign of their comrades.“
