    Default F/O William Clifford Hall 78264

    Continuing with my trawl through MotBoB, the above officer is said to have been lost whilst with 1 PRU 14/4/41 and is buried at Flushing (Vlissingen). Does anyone have a note of the a/c serial No. (presumably a Spitfire), please.

    TIA

    regards
