|XV Sqn , J. MOORE & Blenheim IV L9469||Hello,
There seems to be some confusion in the data files about J. MOORE, XV Sqn and Blenheim IV, L9469.
Sgt. J. MOORE, 58152 was actually with 40 Sqn and became a pow with the other crew( Steele & Peacock) of Blenheim IV, R3763.Date was 25/26th July 1940. His pow number was 188. and was at "357".
He should not be confused with Sgt A, J, MOORE.
This was Sgt. A.E.J. MOORE, 1600685 . Who became pow when 77 Sqn Halifax II, JD247 "H" went down on the 19th November 1943.
His pow number was 263496 and was at 4B.

with two CHARLES HENRY ROBINSON entries, differing by service nos, dates of death and cemetery.
I'm unable to look into this further... ....Read More.||Don Clark on 16th January 2021 08:18:48|
