Aircraft took off at 14:30 hours on armed Recce on the roads Potenza-Vallata-Grottaminarda-Lioni-Avigiano. Bombs were dropped on 12 plus MT at N.9754, no claims. Strafing from Pt N.9854 to Avigiano resulted in 3MT flamers, 7 MT damaged. Visibility good.****AA light*intense and MG fire from PT N.9854 all along the road to Avigiano. No e/a.

Rob,

D.B. Brown isn´t listed as POW.
W/O Wilfred David Brown R86267 was born on 13/10/19 and killed on 19/9/43. His nickname was „Canada“ and „Western Desert“.

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
