Re: F/Sgt.M.Smith 248 Squadron

Hi Bruce,

As the username suggests my interest is in the Australian/RAAF side of things. Unfortunately I cannot add too much to the information already supplied. However, I would be very keen to learn what further details you have of the combat claims attributed to 248 Sqn and other coastal command units.

You are probably aware that P/O Bennett was an Australian in the RAF while F/Lt Rose & Sgt Windsor were both RAAF. So far my list of Australian aircrew serving with 248 Sqn during WWII is up to fourteen. Of this number, Rose, along with R.F.Hammond and P.J.O. Mueller were the more successful in terms of aerial claims (all their claims were during 1941/42). My nominal lists for 235 & 236 Sqns are surprisingly similar in terms of personnel 235 Sqn 13 Aussies and 236 Sqn 15.

Feel free to email me - dDOTharrATbigpondDOTcom (replace DOT & AT with the necessary symbols).
