    Default F/Sgt W.D. MALSBURY - 1210148

    PoW and listed in PoW-register 4A-222528.
    In 'Footprints on the sands of time' (Clutton-Brock) listed as 4B-222528, 24-6-1943, Halifax DT513 of 51 Sqn, captured in Paris 25-7-1943.
    Chorley has DT513 being lost 28/29-6-1943 having crashed into the sea (1 airman washed ashore and buried Bergen [NL] 6 on the Runnymede).
    51 Sqn lost 24/25-6-1943 Halifax JD250 also over sea (4 airmen on the Runnymede and 3 washed ashore [buried over 3 places in NL]).
    Malsbury is not in my files; did he bale out an aircraft that safely returned to base ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Thanks John. Also have quite a lot of info on 51 Sqn and his name did not turn up. Fact that F/Sgt W.D. MALSBURY - 1210148 is listed in the PoW-register. Curious to know what unit he was assigned.
    Regards,
    Henk.
