    Default 203 Squadron aircraft loss 28 july 1942

    Help please.
    I'm looking for any info on the loss of an aircraft from 203 Squadron on 28 JUly 1942.

    My man is Pilot Officer (49700) Charles Richard Hamilton Underwood and he and his three crewmates are named on the Alamein Memorial - so I'm guessing that they were on a Martin Baltimore rather than a Blenheim.
    The others were FO Lynn HARVEY (101473) FSgt. George William JEWELL (R/77406) RCAF and Sgt. James Mclennan McINTOSH (989697)

    Cheers
    Ken
