    Default F/S John Thomas - 545987 - Died 12/7/42 - 51 Sqd - Runnymede Memorial

    Hello all,

    Yet again, could someone provide the following information on the above airman:-

    Serial No and Code;

    Possible Crashsite.

    I believe Sgt Thomas was flying in a Whitley at the time of his death.

    Appreciative as always.

    Kindest Regards.

    Steve.

    Hi Steve
    John T Thomas is on the memorial of 51 Sqn at http://www.51squadron.com/Memorial/HonourRoll/T.htm. He was on board Whitley V,Z9511.
    From the Air Britain Z Serials it was shot down by enemy A/C over the Western Approaches. 51 Sqn were based at Chivenor in Devon at the time. The 51 Sqn website places them in 4 Gp Bomber Command suggesting that they were on loan to Coastal Command at the time of the loss.
    Regards
    Dick
