    Default Halifax MZ698, F/Sgt Bulmer and F/Sgt J.W.Needham

    For a further research i need help to obtain information for Navigator F/Sgt G.H.Bulmer and Wop F/Sgt J.W.Needham. Both airmen baled out from a 77 sqdn Halifax MZ698, KN-J over Holland but became POW. They survived WW2 and would like to know what became of them and I am eager to get in touch with them and/or family. Also would like to obtain more info about MidUpper Sgt R.Cottar as where he came from ,his family etc. .

    Regards and Many Thanks,
    Adrian

    I know all the details but I am searching only for the details on Bulmer and Needham and what became of them after the war. I only know that they are F/Sgt and being a POW that's all.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

    Adrian, Hi,
    Robert Cottar Probably(?)
    b. in Scotland 1923, or before.
    Enlisted 1348052 in Block 1340001-1350000 between 1 Feb 1941 and 30 Apr 1941(?) - nearer the latter - at Edinburgh. If he was 18 on Enlistment, then he was born c.1923. Looks like a job for somebody with credits on Scotland's People?
    Best I can do!

    Hi Adrian,

    I noted that the Aussie Jack Nott bailed out and was being hidden by the Dutch underground when he and two others were captured by the Gestapo and murdered and their bodies were cremated at a concentration camp. RIP.

    Regards,

    John.

    Is there any one who can help me to find out where F/Sgt Bulmer and Needham was born or lived?? Would like to contact them or their families.
    Thank you very much,
    Adrian
