    Default RNZAF Enquiry

    Does anyone have details regarding P/O Norman George Clark, RNZAF, lost Feb. 02 1943?

    Anything pertaining to squadron, aircraft registration and circumstances of death would be much appreciated.

    Errol, if you read this, I searched through your previous threads which listed RNZAF casualties however did not come up with anything. Thanks in advance if you are able to provide any details.

    Regards

    Eric
