    Default P/O Alan Walter Camp

    PO Camp is recorded where I work as being the only employee recorded as killed in WW2. He was with 22 Squadron and died 15/6/41. He is remembered on the Runnymeade Memorial.

    Can anyone possibly let me have the circumstances relating to his death, the anniversary of which is approaching.

    Many thanks

    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    Op: Shipping Strike, RAF North Coates, 10:40 hrs

    Took off in company with other squadron aircraft for a Rover mission to the coast of Holland. Sighted and attacked a large convoy 30 km north west of Texel. The flight leader F/O Gibbs attacked from the landward side at 12:30 hrs and sank the 2,000 ton Danish ship Hans Droge but the other two aircraft failed to hit a vessel. P/O Camp is believed to have been shot down by a flak ship 10 km west of Texel. All are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Regards
    Ross
