    Default F/O H Henn J/90055

    Could anyone help with additional data for the above Canadian who flew ops early 1945 to end of war in Europe. I have detail of his ops with 101 squadron but from his rank suspect he could have served elsewhere prior to joining 101 sqdn.
    His Christian name and home town would be useful too.
    Thanks in advance.

    Ian,

    Howard "Howie" Harold Henn born Wilkie, Saskatchewan 11 July 1923, d. Victoria, British Columbia 25 May 1997.

    I have his service file but only up to war's end. He re-enlisted and served until 1968. I'll dig it up later today and edit in his postings.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Excellent, thats really useful information.
    I did reply to yr PM but could not find my message and fear it did not go, I am partially sighted and sometimes struggle to tick all the boxes.
