    Default Help with Canadian Airman

    Can anyone provide any further detail e.g. SNCO service number, movements, etc., on J15497 FO Charles Witcher who was a WO/AG. I know he was shot down whilst serving with 35 Squadron on 7/8 November 1941 on ops to Essen and spent the remainder of the war as a POW. He was liberated by the 11th Armoured Division on 2nd May 1945. At some stage he returns to Canada where he dies in 2008 in Vancouver. I believe he was from Brandon Manitoba. Prior to 35 Squadron he served briefly at 78 Squadron.

    Many thanks
