    Default E.W. Cox SGT RAF

    Gents

    Can anyone out there please assist me with information for the Loss of SGT E.W.Cox RAF 1334812 of 51Sqdn.

    It seems he was lost on a raid either 16 Apr 1943 or 17 Apr 1943 over Germany. Looking for normal details (such as Aircraft, serial, codes, crew, target etc).

    If someone is able to assist I would be more than grateful

    regards

    Buz
