Peter,

Quoting from Tony Woods RAF Claims list:
RAF 11 Gp. 29 Sqn. 1 Beaufighter If 20.43-00.07 Interception 1 - 0 - 0 Unident. No casualty GCI: S.E. Beachy Head
Claim 20.08.42 Pilot 11 Group 29 Sqn. 1 - 0 - 0 Unident: 23.40 ca: S.E. Beachy Head
Claim 20.08.42 Radio Observer 11 Group 29 Sqn.

That MAY BE your crew!

Adriano

And File AIR 27/341/66 do gives
P/O G. Pepper (Pilot)
P/O Toone (Nav)
Took off at 20:44hs. Landing at 23:59hs. They claimed a "He 177"...serveral burts...starboard engine caught fire. Combat took place 35 miles SE of Beachy Head, at 23:27hs.
Probably T7216 (not sure about the first letter...ORB only register 7216 as the serial number).

Hello,

George Pepper was not RCAF, he was a Canadian serving in the RAF.

For more info on Pepper and Toone, see:

http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-P-O-J-H-Toone

Beaufighter V8380 was a Mk.IF, not a IIF as I stated in the above link.

T7216 was a Tiger Moth! Beaufighter serial possibly X7816.

Col.
