    Errol,

    Thanks for this info of NZ4211814 Flt Sgt Ivan Albert Horsley
    Is NZ4211814 right ???? ( NZ421814 )

    My interest.
    Got early this year a question from a researcher in Pennsylvania, USA
    who found in The National Archive, MD, USA by accident "173" POW snapshots
    - taken early 1945 - at Dulag Luft West - Oberursel, Germany.
    Most were USAF, however some were from other Airforces,
    incl. NZ429763 - F/O - Pilot - Fairfax "Tiger" Moresby

    You did give me the info of Moresby earlier this year.
    Last week, after an email of Keith Sampson ( nephew of Gage )
    I did go for more details of that crew.

    It's all here: http://www.teunispats.net/macr-12109.htm

    My main page, a 50x50 mi area in the North East of the Netherlands is here:
    http://www.teunispats.net/jack-edward-gibbs.htm

    Plenty of "RNZAF" and "RAAF" servicemen there.
    Any question ? Let me know.
