    Rick,
    Yes to both, he was with 106sqdn and he does have a combat report available for 18/03/44 which can be downloaded for £3.50 from the N/A website.

    Very many thanks, do you have copies of the ORB entries? I am quite happy to pay for this service, Rick

    Rick,
    I was just about to edit my reply when you answered, Pilot Officer Money was the pilot of the aircraft concerned and not an air gunner, his M/upper was Sgt Harris and R/Gunner was Sgt Long. Check you email for file.

    Hi, just received it, many thanks, any idea as to P/O Money's initial? I am only assuming he was an AG because some an AG wing was with his ID discs, maybe he was a pilot? Do you have access to the ORB? Thanks again, Rick

    Hello,
    Sgt Ernest Long who flew with him, died on 8 May 1944 in the attack of the ammunition dump of Salbris.

    Default Hampden AD756

    Hello,

    I'm trying to find the aircraft ID letter of Hampden AD756, 106 Sqn RAF, shot down by a nightfighter on the morning of 17 August 1941 with the loss of 3 crewmembers, and 2 taken prisoner. My great uncle, 1250963 Sgt Leonard Acres was the observer on this a/c. Along with the pilot, PO G G Watts and another officer, PO J Grant, he is buried in Gembloux Cemetery, Namur, Belgium. (PO Grant was apparently flying supernumerary, the 2 air gunners taken prisoner were Sgts G V Lynn and J H Cook).

    I know the Squadron code was ZN, but have failed to find the aircraft code letter.

    If anyone could help with this I would really appreciate it.

    Karen

    I know this is an old post, but I have only just come across it whilst researching my family member. PO G G Watts was related to me and is buried next to your great uncle in Gembloux.
