    Default LAC. V. S. G. Barrow.

    LAC VSG Barrow was injured in the crash of Blenheim L9179 - 139 Squadron on 14 May 1940.

    On 1 August 1940 a Victor. St. George. Barrow was killed when Blenheim R3898 - 114 Squadron crashed. Is this one and the same airman?

    Any help appreciated.

    Regards
    Peter.

    Default St Barrow

    Reading your message mention the name of St G Barrow rings a bell to me.
    Checking my documentation I found his name on a document "Gemeente Haamstede - Algemene Begraafplaats, list of english pilots".


    The english translation of the document says that V St G Barrow was buried at the Cemetry at Haamstede (South Westh of Holland - Zeeland) during the WWII years.

    Some details:
    a/c crashed at aug 1st 1940 time 16:00 hrs, all three crewmembers killed and buried aug 3, 1940. RAF service number Barrow 542271
