    Default Looking for 1944: 104 Sqn crew info

    HI all

    I am looking for info on two lost crews of 104 Sqn RAF, lost on night 1/2 July 1944, planes MF or LP131 and MF137.
    Can someone provide crew lists, confirm planes codes and serials? Anyone has photo of planes, crews, or just men?
    Thanks

    Hello Peter,

    1/2-7-1944
    No.104 Squadron
    Wellington X MF137 'H'

    Missing, mining the Danube.

    Crew (alpha order)

    AUS420946 P/O ( - ? - ) Edward James HOLMES RAAF +
    1200951 F/Sgt (Nav.) Kenneth George KINGERLEE RAFVR +
    522256 F/Sgt (Air Bomber) Ernest William MORGAN RAF +
    AUS427933 Sgt ( - ? - ) Geoffrey Goodhand PARKER RAAF +
    1318337 F/Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr.) Kenneth Norman WIGGINS RAFVR +

    All buried Belgrade War Cemetery. Coll. Grave 6.D.4-8

    NB.

    Kingerlee (P/O 178828 - 15-6-44), Morgan (P/O 55796 - 23-6-1944) and Wiggins (P/O 178693 - 11-6-1944) had all been promoted prior to their loss. Their unit had probably not been notified of this fact, and they were recorded as above.

    No further details, and subject to confirmation.

    Col.
