    Alain,
    Can you give me the name and unit of the person on the Esc/Ev report that you want copied. I may have it among my files.
    Regards......Alan.

    here are some scans of the Escape Evasion report indexes that Steve Brew provided on his site:

    http://brew.clients.ch/Index%20WO208.htm

    To order files you need to go to the UK National Archives site:

    http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/search.asp

    Search for "evasion" in the "WO" department/series code in the upper left hand corner and you will get these file index references, you can order the files on paper or digital but you would need to know what index they are listed in, Steve's site might contain the relevent index. Lists of names are not on the UK NA site as far as I know.

    I'm sure theres an easier way also.

    regards

    Dennis

    Alain,
    I have not got the report for Weare among my collection, i've also looked through the 1944 Esc/Ev index of names (11 pages) that i have but it does not show a reference to him. BC Losses 1944 also has no record of him, so it may be that there was no file made out for him.
    Regards........Alan.
