    Default 115 Squadron.31stOct/1st Nov.1941.Snowden Crew

    115 squadron-Wellington IC X9873 KO-P-op-Bremen
    I am seeking further info on this crew,mainly christian names(i have Brazier's)
    Their hometowns and crew positions.
    All were pow's.
    Also Sergeant Woolley RCAF apparently wrote a book"No time off for good behaviour",of his time as a p.o.w.
    Has anyone any details on this book please
    I have the info from Chorley's of the crash etc but any other info is welcome
    Many thanks

    Linda,
    It seems that also the crew member A.E. ROBINSON wrote a book (in Dutch titled: "Ontmoeting met een grijze monnik" - Meeting [with] a grey monk). I've SNOWDEN as the pilot * 'Ted' WOOLLEY as 2nd pilot * ROBINSON the navigator * BRAZIER the front gunner/airbomber * Allan CLARKE as wireless operator/airgunner RCAF from Newfoundland * DARVILL being the reargunner. Crashlanded on the Dutch Frisian island Schiermonnikoog 21.05h.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Ken,thanks so much for the extra info. and also the offer of look ups in the book.
    I have managed to order a second hand copy of Woolleys book which should be here in the next couple of days and should be a good read(I can then pass it on to my local library for their WW2 section)
