    Default Can anyone Identify Lt A M Brand 329236V SAAF of 250 Sqn in 1944

    I am trying to identify Lt A M Brand 329236V SAAF of 250 Sqn (Sudan Squadron) in 1944

    He had a crash landing at Rimini airfield on 22 Sept 1944 in a Kittyhawk - I know all about this - I am just trying to ID him

    He is not on CWGC so I assume survived WW2

    Many Thanks

    Hoping someone has access to

    Carel Birkby 'Close to the sun: the story of the Sudan Squadron, RAF) (250 Squadron Association; also CD-ROM from 2000)

    Or any other Sqn History which may mention him
