    Default Unaccounted airman - 23-11-1941 (Middle East)

    Looking for the serial number of a Tomahawk aircraft of 250 Squadron.
    F/Sgt Donald M. PALETHORPE - RCAF R/61111 (250 Sqn - LG.123) was shot down 30 miles S of El Adem. His name is commemorated on Column 246 of the Alamein Memorial.
    Can't find a matching serial number in my Tomahawk file; a possibility is Tomahawk IIB - serial AN238 - SOC 24-11-1941 with 250 Sqn.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk
    According to the Air Britain AA-AZ Serials published in 2000, AN238 was with 3 Sqn SAAF when it was shot down on a sweep on 4/9/42. It had previously been with 3 Sqn RAAF.
    Regards
    Dick
