    Default 53 OTU Spitfire IIa P7607 23rd April 1943

    Second query

    A Norwegian web site has the pilot of this aircraft as being killed "Sergeant Hals of the Royal Norwegian Air Force"

    Can anyone provide more information about who and where (if indeed P7607 was lost oin this date_

    Thanks

    Hello Paul,
    P7607 - 53 OTU: Hit ground recovering from dive mile W of Abergerdin, Glamorganshire.
    In my list of unaccounted airmen two names:
    Sgt William H. JUMP - 332587 - age 42 (was from Nr. 2 Sqn, Fowlmere, Cambs), and
    Sgt (Pilot) Ronald WHITLAM - 1504894 (buried Thorne Cemetery, Yorkshire).
    Place of death registration may solve the question. (Look forward for that info).
    Regards,
    Henk.

    I too have Hals on P7607. Abercerdin School, Gilfach Goch, Glam.

    Henk

    Whitlam is registered at Brackley, Northants and may be associated with the loss of Oxford ED169 of 20 PAFU at Croughton.

    Jump was registered at Bucklow, Cheshire a district which includes Ringway.

    regards

    Dave W, thanks for this and the other post.. I don't suppose there is a Hals on the death register is there??

    Or has someone got a Norwegian Roll of Honour Henk ??.. He could of course survived!

    Hals may be Sgt JM Hals who is in index of Gifts of War ('75') but I can't see him on Page 75! He must be in the book somewhere!

    No. not in the death register as he was RNAF. I have not got to the bottom of where these 'foreign' deaths were registered. I guess this is the site you consulted http://www.rafandluftwaffe.info/lists/raf1b.htm

    Paul,

    Hals on p.75 of Gifts of War. Check out 'BORNEO N.E.I'.
