    Default Pilot Officer Richard Lewis

    Can anyone provide me with info on Pilot Officer Richard Lewis who was apparently accompanying Wing Commander Brendan 'Paddy' Finucane on 20 February 1942 when Finucane was wounded during an engagement with two FW190s?

    Paddy Finucane was in a Spitfire Vb (BL548)of 602 City of Glasgow Squadron, so I assume Richard Lewis was with 602 also. David Masters has referred to him as Australian but I can't trace him.

    There is no record of a Richard Lewis on the Commonwealth War Graves Site so I assume he either survived the War or had other first names.

    Over to you Hugh?!

    Many thanks, in anticipation,

    Gerry
