    Default RJ Collins RAAF (31-05-1942) w5586

    Hi there just looking for details on sgt rj collins, in BCL 1942 (p103) he is listed as KIA on raid to cologne on 31-05-1942 whilst in Wellington w5586.

    can't find any further reference to him though in Cwgc, BCL amendments etc.

    IS his status incorrect, is name correct ?

    cheers

    Mark.

    In BCL Vol 7 (OTU's) Collins is marked as 'evaded' and 'returned to the UK by 21st July 1942'.

    Hi Mark

    Service No. 405035

    An evader as Dave says

    Cheers
