RAF Sea Otter - 14 April 1946 - Indonesia

On 14 April 1946 an RAF Sea Otter went missing on a flight from Seletar (Singapore) to Batavia (Jakarta).

Crew was spotted on Noordwachter Island (now Pulau Sebira) off the Java coast and was picked up next day by a Dutch Catalina of 321 Squadron.

A Dutch NEI newspaper of 16 Apr 1946 mentions crew names: P/O Broughton, Holden and Hall, and W/O Johnson.

Looking for serial and unit of this Sea Otter which was lost due to breaking up against sea rocks.

There was Sea Otter JM817 in the NEI Comms Flight, but not sure if this is the one involved.

Thanks for info.

Regards,

Leendert
