    Henk,

    Re; 66546 P/O Louis G R WALLIINGTON:

    26-12-1941
    No.39 Sqn.
    Beaufort I N1092

    Missing Crete-Libya.

    66548 P/O (Pilot) Louis George Ralph WALLINGTON RAFVR +
    746986 Sgt (Obs.) Victor Edwin MILES RAFVR +
    955473 Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr) Clifford TOWNEND RAFVR +
    AUS400555 Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr.) Geoffrey Walter FISHER RAAF +

    Miles,Townend and Fisher commemorated on the Alamein Memorial. Wallington buried Tripoli (Victoria) Naval War Cemetery.

    Wallington's body was washed ashore at El Mounta*, near Hamadiyeh and found by a Fighting French coastwatcher. Buried at El Mind Victoria Naval Cemetery 4-6-1942.

    Fisher's body reportedly buried near a beach on the island of Koufonisi, off the south east coast of Crete, but the grave was later lost due to action of waves and high tides. Some personal effects belonging to Fisher were recovered from his body and sent to his mother, but unfortunately, his grave was lost.

    *These placenames need verification.

    Default 411226 - Unaccounted airman (RAAF) - 26-12-1941

    What caused the death of AUS400555 Sgt Geoffrey W. FISHER - RAAF - missing 26-12-1941 and commemorated Column 246 of the Alamein Memorial. GRO-List 39 Sqn. Can't find a matching Beaufort or Maryland serial in my files.
    In my list of airmen unaccounted for is for same date and 39 Sqn P/O Lewis G.R. WALLINGTON - 66548, buried Tripoli/Victoria (Naval) Cem., Lebanon (reported missing Casualty Communiqué # 111, Flight 26-2-1942, page 187).
    Regards and thanks,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk

    I have Fisher in Beaufort I, N1092, together with Wallington which I think came from Storr.
