Hi Drew
Thank you very much. It will be easyer now to find the Spitfire he flew.
On 5 March an other Canadian from 601 Sqn, William Richard Percival 'Percy' Sewell (J/6290) landed safely though he had some bullet wounds in his left leg after attacked by a Bf 109.
It seems that 92 and 601 Sqn shared the same airfield.
Regards , Thierry
