    Default Robert Henry Jones , Typhoon PD471

    On 21 October 1944 Typhoon MP143 of 197 Sqn crashed at Breda, Holland... Pilot P/O R.H.Jones was safe and returned,

    On 31 December 1944 Typhoon PD471 of 197 Sqn crashed near Elshout in Holland... Pilot P/O Robert Henry Jones (RCAF J/85509) was KIA.

    Question is... is R.H.Jones of the 1st crash the same pilot as Robert Henry Jones in the 2nd crash? Seems to me, but I'm not 100% sure!

    Hello,

    The No.197 Squadron ORB Record of Events, November 1944

    http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ils/r/D8392196 Hit Preview an image of this record. Go to Image 11 of 13.

    Confirms they are one and the same airman, P/O R.H. Jones (J.85509).
