    Default Two Airmen lost 8th April 1945.

    Hello,

    Any help welcome.

    Two Airmen lost on the 8th April 1945.
    Both from 256 Squadron.
    W/O. Raymond John Hedge RAF 518431
    Recorded on the Malta Memorial
    and
    Flt/Sgt. John Sanderson RAFVR 1567077
    at rest in the Udine War Cemetery.

    Can anyone tell me for sure if they were both lost with the same aircraft ?

    Were more than one Mosquito from 256 sqdn lost this date ?

    If so then I have HK187 what was the other please ?

    Many thanks
    Alex

    Sanderson seems to have been Hedge's regular navigator, to judge by the contents of the latter's logbook, which was on ebay some time ago. Can send you the logbook scans I downloaded at the time if you like.
