    Default PoW Help

    Hi,

    Looking for PoW details on a Sergeant Reginald Ernest Richardson 904833, a 2nd pilot on 218 Squadron.

    He is listed on the commands poW list L3 248001 Richardson R E 904833 RAF

    However I cannot find him in FOTSOT by Clutton-Brock. Trying to establish when shot down?

    TIA

    Update,

    The RAF Bomber Losses in the Middle East and Mediteranean by David Gunby and Pelham Temple record A.E Richardson 2nd Pilot, made PoW when shot down May 4th 1941 with No.37 Squadron. I believe this should be R.E Richardson, when cross checking the ORB against the Air78, the service number 904833 was allocated to Reginald Ernest Richardson. This error seems to have been duplicated in FOTSOT.

    Cheers
