    Default Hudson loss

    Hello,

    I am looking for the composition of a crew of Hudson, 220 Sqdn, landing on 2 April 1941, in the aera Plounevez-Lochrist (Finistère). Crew POW.

    Thank you

    Dan

    I'm at work so I don't have Ross's CCL Vol. 1 to hand but here's from a Google search for 220 Squadron Hudson and some playing around

    http://www.conscript-heroes.com/Art%20Bob%20Milton.html

    F/Lt R Milton
    Pilot Sgt S J Houghton (373),
    radio operator Sgt J Burridge (562)
    rear gunner Sgt R E Griffiths (480),

    Have a read and check against Ross's POW lists on this site.

    regards

    Thank you,
    I feel I'm on the wrong track. In my losses brittany noted crashed to Maillé, north-east of Brest?
    While on the page : http://www.conscript-heroes.com/Art 20Bob%% 20Milton.html,

    it is stated in the west of Poitiers.

    It is far to Brest on a mission?
