    Default Warrant Officer D. H. Brown RAAF 406802

    Hi - I'm trying to locate the squadron, aircraft flown in and position for the above as part of some research on RAAF men held captive in Stalag 344. All I can locate so far is the fact that his aircraft was downed due to engine failure off the coast of Tunisia 10/10/42. Initially interned in Laghouat then transferred to Stalag VIIIB/344 and arrived back in the UK 13/04/45 after surviving the "Long March" to Zieganhain. Any help given would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks everyone. For some reason I had a mental blank and never thought to try the casualty reports in the NAA files.
