    Default Sgt NATHAN, MICHAEL FREDERICK 1239636

    Hi All

    The above was killed on 1 Sep 1942 with 122 Sqn, he is not listed in Franks so I am assuming a non-operational casualty, does anyone have further details?

    Cheers

    Malcolm

    Malcolm,
    He's listed in Franks' FCL vol.2, page 67 (1st ed) however as Sgt G. NADAN.
    Spitfire Vb serial AB859 lost on patrol; commemorated Panel 90 of the Runnymede Memorial.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Thanks Henk

    I can understand the confusion between Nadan and Nathan but how they get 'G' from 'M F', I've no idea

    Nathan and Nadan were two different people. Would be worth contacting Alex Smart, who appears to have more info:

    Hi,
    If Nadan is said to be on Runnymede Memorial, why does'nt he show up on CWGC listings. The only Nadan's i find are a Cook and a Private.

    Things getting more and more obscure.............
    Air Britain for AB859: lost 16-9-1942.
    FCL (Franks) vol.2, page 67: 16-9-1942 - AB859 - G. NADAN (what may have been G. NADON) killed - however "A".G. NADON - RCAF R/69392 survived the war.
    CWGC date of death for M.F. NATHAN - 122 Sqn: "1" September 1942.
    Checked all Spitfire serials AA-AZ and BA-BZ and could not find a 122 Sqn loss for 1-9-1942.
    Transfer error CWGC death date for Nathan ?
    The losscard for AB859 may probably have an answer.
    Who is offering the helping hand ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    He is listed as Missing, preseumed Killed in Action in the Flight magazine dated March 18 1943. He is subsquently PREVIOUSLY REPORTED MISSING, BELIEVED KILLED IN ACTION, NOW PRESUMED KILLED IN ACTION the October 7th magazine.

    His name is spelled Natham admitidly. There is no Natham on CWGC. Does the 122 ORB have anything on the 16th Sep?
