    "Proctor and F/Sgt G D Thomas failed to return from a met recce sortie...based on their W/T reports it was estimated that their aeroplane, (Mosquito)TE640, must have gone down in the vicinity of 9'N 85'E. For the next five days the squadron swept the area with five-aircraft formations carrying out parallel track and creeping line ahead searches, but nothing was ever found."

    Many thanks for that information. Much appreciated.
    F/L Proctor is 'remembered' in a local church and was a pre war friend of my late fathers.
