    Another local man I can find little of. He volunteered for air crew and I am told locally that he only survived one op before being shot down ! He lived in Lambourne Essex and was best friend of a local aged 98 with a remarkable memory.

    Help please

    Thanks Ross, that certainly looks as if it could be him but his parents were in Staines Middx which is a long way from Lambourne. I will have to ask my local chap if he has any more info. He tells me that when he was courting, George Moss was courting the sister and they often went out as a foursome.
