Yugoslav Aircrew PoW in WW2 - Help Needed
OK – So who is our Yugoslav expert?
In Ross’ list of WW2 PoWs there is a P M CRNJANSKI. He was a Plt Off in the RAF. There are CRNJANSKI’s in FREEBMD (same spelling despite transliterations from whatever version of the Cyrillic script(s) they were using). There is an M Milos Crnjanski who appears in the Diplomatic Lists for Yugoslavia in London in WW2, and gets Naturalised on 24 Jan 1951 (LG). He is said to have had “private means” – which makes my antennae twitch quite violently!! Now I don’t know much about the family names in the former Yugoslavia, so I don’t know if this guy might be a (close?) relative of our P M Crnjanski? If our P M Crnjanski was a Plt Off (of Yugoslav extraction) then his Commissioning, etc, is unlikely to appear in the LG to protect rellies back home? Also, there is no a/c serial against his entry in Ross’ list, so we don’t know if he was a fighter pilot, or bomber/coastal/recce aircrew.
He is one (of very, very, many!!!) on the PoW list(s) about whom little is known.
Can anybody fill in any of the blanks?
This (and others) is a problem akin to “painting The Forth Bridge”! I might seek more help in the future!

We might not know - but we might know who does!
