..perhaps Cheshire then ? did he fly the raid..no ? if not ...then Tait....how many goes do I get..?
No, no - neither Cheshire or Tait were on the Raid....
Further clue : the man in question was flying Mossies operationally from Little Snoring in Norfolk when he flew over to show Gibson his aircraft......
Wg Cdr J. B. Selby of 23 Squadron
Further clue.....the man in question became an Air Marshal post-war and passed away in 1988.....
R ‘Dickie’ Williams?
No...no...none of these people were on the Dams Raid.....
I actually have a list but I don't knwow if he was in the fist wave, so I need to look a little more
got it Martin...
it is of course Harold 'Mick' Martin who went to 515 Squadron on Mossies at Little Snoring some time after the dams raid ..died Nov 88 last rank Air Marshall
here's his bio
Yes !!!! We have a new winner !
'Mickey' Martin it was who showed off his Mossie to Gibson.....
And now it's over to Neil for a new question.....
After hours of research, I was going to say Amelia Earhart. My web source says she was found, had a sex change operation and became an Air Marshal in the RAF after the war. :vegetate:
The History Channel is doing a show about it later this year.
If the HC is on to it, then you know it is the absolute, unvarnished truth and worthy of being used as primary sources on someone's doctoral thesis.
Seems like no-one else is going to have a go, so I'll take a deep breath and say : -
H. Wick / S.Schnell / H. Hahn / J. Wurmheller
..not correct .... I'll give you Wick (at no.3 in fact) but none of the others... clue; think Spain !
One name comes to my mind : Oessau
..sorry no..try the Kommodoren..should give you the first two names ..just leaves name no. 4
This is giving me a headache.....
What about Von Massov, von Bülow-Bothkamp and Schellmann?
Julius Meimberg ?
