    Default RAF POW Unknown Sqn

    Can anyone tell me which Squadron FW Manning belonged to? I know he was held at Luft 6 and Stalag 357 but unfortunately I don't have any more information.

    Thanks

    hello,

    He's listed in the PoW section of the board, but with no Squadron. Not listed in "footprints in the sands of time" by Oliver Clutton-Brock which covers RAF Bomber Command prisoners of war in Germany.

    Hence Fighter Command, 2nd TAF or Coastal Command ?

    If you're close enough to Kew, or considering a visit there in the near future, a check in the WO344 series will tell you all his details (first names, date of birth, unit, date and place of capture). I've checked the questionnaires I have, in case of... Unfortunately not one I have.
