    Default J.B. Coward shot down 31/8/40

    Hi guys

    James Coward of 19 Squadron was shot down during the Battle of Britain, on 31 August 1940.

    He was badly injured and had a leg amputated. I have seen mention that he was shot down by Do17 return fire, a Bf109, or own AA fire - or perhaps all three!

    Is there any connection between Coward's misfortune and the account of a 19 Squadron pilot being shot down and losing a leg (as recorded in Dizzy Allen's FIGHTER SQUADRON, page 60 of paperback version)?

    Has anyone details please?
    Cheers
    Brian
