Re: Seenotstaffeln Activity 08 Nov 42, Channel Islands

Wasn't November 8,1942 the date when P/O Amos of 140 Sq was shot down near the Channel islands?
According to the following quote from "The Silent War" by Frank Falla [p81], a narrative about the Channel islands: " One cheerful flier I was able to talk to in November 1942 was a young twenty two Australian pilot named Amos who baled out after some Messerschmitts had shot up his petrol tanks . He landed on some rocks and was making his way up the cliff when an islander redirected him just in time for he was walking into a minefield."
