    Default 1 OADU - Hudson FH230 - 26-6-1942

    Hello,

    Need some help in positively identifying a Canadian airman.

    On 26-6-1942, 1 OADU Hudson IIIA FH230, crashed and was destroyed by fire when an engine cut on approach to Luqa, Malta.

    I have the following crew:

    R/81436 Sgt (Pilot) E J DOHERTY/DOCHERTY RCAF - Survived
    1064002 Sgt (Obs.) Stephen MATTHEWS RAFVR +
    1260278 Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr.) Wilfred John CULBERT RAFVR +
    AUS407650 Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr.) Maxwell Ernest REDDEN RAAF - Injured

    Can anyone positively identify, DOHERTY/DOCHERTY?

    TIA.

    Col.

    Hope that helps.
