    Default J E Norris - 12-6-43

    Looking for circumstances of the death of John Edward NORRIS 142348.
    Believe he may have been on 28 OTU Wellington R1324 piloted by Douglas Ewen Paul.

    Seeking confirmation, and also that the aircraft was lost from the Dusseldorf raid.

    Many thanks
    Martyn

    Martyn,
    Can confirm he was on R1324, but it was on an air-sea search when lost.
