Wing Commander William Edward Thomas 60824 died recently. He is best known for taking part in the Great Escape, and according to reports he was one of the ones captured in the tunnel.

I have found the usual LG entries, and his postwar postings, awards etc. Hwoever, I cannot track down the aircraft or unit in which he was lost. Some spurious reports say that he was lost in a Blenheim in 1941, but I can't seem to find him in Warner.

Does anyone have any details


BTW he is also listed as an advisor on the Battle of Britain film
