    Default evasion report of Sgt W. Brazill, No. 150 Squadron

    Hello

    One of my contacts asked me if I had the evasion report of an aircrew from No. 150 Squadron, whose Wellington was lost over Belgium during the Essen raid 16/17 September 1942.
    I only had the appendix of the said report (in WO 208/5582)
    I'd like to know if a forumite has it.
    This report is in a volume that TNA hasn't digitized yet, so can't be purchased online.
    TIA

    Fold3.com has excerpts from Tavender's DFM book available online, and it has an fairly detailed account of the evasion from Air2/495.

    I can send over a copy of you drop me a PM.

    regards

    Hello

    Thanks for your message.

    Peter, the appendix doesn't have the détails such as date of birth and date of joining, contrary to the evasion report.

    Simon, I've PM'ed you.
