    Hello Philipe

    Noted from AIR 29/415, Form 541:-
    16 Sep'42, Benson, Spitfire R7038, P/O [I.G.] Barraclough, Sortie C/391, Time Up 07.38, Objective Bremen D/A Wilhelmshaven D/A, Result Did Not Return.

    The pilots initials are noted from the Form 540 from the same date. Looking at the old RAFCommands forum P.O.W. list [http://www.rafcommands.com/Air%20Force%20PoWs/RAF%20POWs%20Query%20B_1.html] he was held at Stalag Luft 3, Sagan.

    Kind regards
    Pierre
