    Default Flt Sgt L C Thompson, 86 Sqn

    Hi All,

    I am looking for the full name and service number of F/Sgt L C Thompson who served with 86 Squadron, both in the UK and Malta. He was shot down on the 24 July 1942 flying Beaufort AW356 and was taken prisoner.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Kind regards

    Kevin

    AW356 was coded BX-Z. Based in the UK IV-V.42 (allegedly was also coded BX-A for some time).
    Supposed to go for Malta in VI.42. BX-Z was shot down near Cepahallonia on 24.7.42.
