    Default No.26 O.T.U Prang

    Gents,

    Looking for the serial / date of a Vickers Wellington involved in a crash landing in April 1943 involving a New Zealand pilot, Noel Robert Humphreys RNZAF.

    Any pointers welcome.!

    Hi Steve,

    Humphreys was later killed with 623 Sqn on a raid to Mannheim-Ludwigshafen in Stirling EH878 on 5/6 Sept 1943 along with 5 of his crew. He also survived being torpedoed in the " Waiwera" on 29 June 1942. It was his 20th Op (For Your Tomorrow).

    Steve, how are you ? I have lost your email address when my computer crashed a few months ago. Could you dop me a line jwilliamsATeftel.com.au

    Cheers,

    John.
