    Default XV Sqn , J. MOORE & Blenheim IV L9469

    Hello,

    There seems to be some confusion in the data files about J. MOORE, XV Sqn and Blenheim IV, L9469.
    .
    So ,
    Sgt. J. MOORE, 58152 was actually with 40 Sqn and became a pow with the other crew( Steele & Peacock) of Blenheim IV, R3763.Date was 25/26th July 1940. His pow number was 188. and was at "357".

    He should not be confused with Sgt A, J, MOORE.
    This was Sgt. A.E.J. MOORE, 1600685 . Who became pow when 77 Sqn Halifax II, JD247 "H" went down on the 19th November 1943.
    His pow number was 263496 and was at 4B.

    Apparently the loss of Blenheim IV R3763 25/26 Jul 1940 is now correct, and in agreement eg with Warner Ch14 App 8 p248, crew correct
    There Peacock is also noted as the "Richard Passmore" pseudonym author of Blenheim Boy [Thomas Harmsworth 1981] (with its laconic account of their bale-out & capture)

    Somehow, despite correction of the spurious Moore entry re L9469, that record is now muddled in another way,
    with two CHARLES HENRY ROBINSON entries, differing by service nos, dates of death and cemetery.

    I'm unable to look into this further...
