    Default Togwell ?4 or 268 pilot??

    I am trying to find out which squadron Togwell. flew with I believe he was Reginald Charles William Togwell (51062).
    He was part of a victory fly-past over liberated Holland with 35 Wing on 15th May 1945 from Twente .
    David GH of 2 Squadron writes... It was a bit of a disaster. Togwell never got off the ground at all as he overturned on take-off. 12 of us flew over Utrecht The Hague, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. In fact, we flew so far, that when we finally got back, practically everyone was running out of fuel and we were all trying to land at the same time. Harry Davison, Freddie George and two of 268 pranged.

    Cheers Motherbird

    F/L R C W Togwell was with No.268 Squadron. He joined the Squadron on 19 April 1945, and was still with the Squadron when they were renumbered as No.16 Squadron in October 1945.
