    Hi Steve,

    From the draft Vol 2 RAF Coasal Command Losses

    16/05/42
    210 Sqn
    Catalina I
    AH535

    DA-J

    Op: Patrol Sentry 3, RAF Sullom Voe, 04:35 hrs

    F/L W A R Keddie
    P/O B H Harmer
    P/O F B Franklin
    P/O P H N Lambert
    F/Sgt D E Hall
    Sgt E C Horton
    Sgt B F Short
    Sgt L Mitchell
    F/Sgt W Lonsdale
    Sgt R Henderson

    Last heard requesting a forecast at 17:39 hrs then nothing further. German radio reported that a Catalina had been shot down 200 miles west of Trondheim, Norway. All are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Regards
    Ross

    Hi Ross,

    Thanks for the quick response. That has helped catch up on a few missing bits and pieces in my database which is getting bigger by the day.

    Looking forward to adding your new Coastal Command Losses edition to my growing collection of books complimenting the RAF during WWII.

    Regards.

    Steve.
