Henk,

Re: BROWN,DAVIES, HOBBS & KEEN.

Possible solution to this problem:

5-5-1943
5 (C) OTU
Hampden I AN155

Lost while on cross-country flight. ASR searches proved fruitless. Four missing. Cat. E.

See:
Handley Page Hampden & Hereford Crash Log.
Roberts,Nicholas (comp.)
Earl Shilton:Midland Counties Publications,1980.
p.48

Maybe someone with a copy of "The Hampden File', can add to this.

Correct Col; Harry Moyle mentioned in his Hampden File: AN155 - Sgt Hobbs and three crew all missing on night navex 4/5-"4"-43; presumed ditched off Ireland. The "4" was my problem as Brown, Hobbs and Keen are listed missing 5-"5"-43 by the CWGC.
Regards,
Henk.
