Ltz II Mans Dorré is instructed to search for drowners with the Catalina Y-45. The other crew members are kite CLVan Kooy, corporal kite telegraphist C.Ch. van Doorn, corporal aircraft maker P Gommers and 2nd aircraft maker JJ de Haas.
Information found on a dutch language site and poorly translated by google but it's a start!

Excellent info. Many thanks. Just what I was seeking.

The information contained in 'Bloody Shambles' Volume 2 was therefore incorrect. I will now be able to rectify this.

Cheers
Brian

Was somewhat puzzled by the name 'Kite Van Kooy'. In original Dutch text it says 'vlieger'. Translation rather 'Flyer' (or Pilot) here, and not 'kite', which also is 'vlieger' in Dutch...

Yes, Google Translate requires its own translation.
