Rob,

Glad to help you.
The sources: Shark Squadron by Robin Brown, Those Other Eagles by Chris Shores, Internet sites and my brain. :shock:
May I ask you who is your father ?

Michal

My father was a cousin to WO WD Brown they where close growing up and father always wondered why nothing was ever found of Wilfred or his plane. That is what started a humble at first website that continues to grow with the help of people like you.

My Thanks
Rob Brown
