      Hi Luca,

      Thank you your interesting posting and for taking the time to enquire about these remarkably brave airmen who made up the Swordfish Squadrons.

      I can confirm my father Sub Ltn RW Taylor [ Raymond Warren ] and his crew Sub Ltn Robinson, landed in the sea off the beach near Cefalu on the 11th November 1941 . I believe they ran out of fuel were then captured by an enemy patrol .Whilst I have no knowledge of what may have happened to Mr Robinson, my father spent the remaining war years as a POW in Italian and predominantly German POW Camps.
      After the War he studied at Oxford University in England ,married, became an architect and migrated here to New Zealand in 1952 . He and our mother passed away in 2002 and 2005 respectively and are survived also by my two sisters and brother and our families.
      My email address is if you would like further information.

      Kind regards

      John Taylor
