    Hello Tom,

    The following from Fighters over the Desert might help:-

    24 July 1942

    Soon after 1730 hours, Hurricanes of 80 Squadron provided top cover to others of 238 on an evening patrol, eight Bf 109s of II./JG 27 being scrambled to intercept the formation. They bounced the top cover , Oblt Sinner shooting down Sgt Moore, one of the 92 Squadron pilots attached to 80, the latter baling out, badly wounded, over Deir el Rakhil. He died of his wounds on 26th.

    See:
    Fighters over the Desert.
    Shores,C. & H.Ring.
    London:Neville Spearman,1969.
    p.152.

    Col.

    Hi Tom ,I've just come across this post & as Alfred was one of my cousins thought I'd get in touch to share any common family history. Alfred's father William (Shanghai police) was my dad's brother.

    Regards, Tom Moore
