    Default F/O D I Evans, 144 Sqn Hampden AE436

    Hi all,

    I am trying to find out what became of this fellow after he was repatriated from Sweden after the crash of Hampden AE436 of 144 Sqn. In an earlier thread, Amrit suggested he was the Evans who was MiD in 1943 but it lists him with 50 Sqn.

    Can anyone tell me what the serial number was of the Evans who flew that day?

    Here is the link to the earlier thread.

    I have seen an article sent to me by Namdrondooh but can't locate it at the moment. In any case, I would like to confirm if he is the same Evans who was MiD, along with his crewmate Sowerby who was also MiD at the same time.

    Thanks Henk. That reconfirms him as the same Evans from 50 Sqn that survived with Sowerby. He later won a DFC with 50 Sqn.

    Now all I need is a copy of his citation or some clue as to how he earned it. The NA has already said it needs a researcher to find it - and I am stuck here in Toronto.
