Re: 349 Sqn Jun 1944

I've been searching in vain for years to find the full names of many Belgian fighter pilots. I have a list of Belgian RAF pilots that shows given names, as well as date of birth, only for those with the last names beginning in A to G. Also those who were killed during the war are found in the CWGC website. The only one of these on your list is:

Sans, Marcel Adrien (rather than "M.J.") (138840) KIA 7 June 1944

https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...marcel-adrien/

"Braggard, J." is Bragard, Jean Henri Fernand (1424828)

The service number for J. G. Moureau is 1289855

Apparently it is J.C.I. Van Molkot (rather than" Melkot") (serv. no. 1814824)

Regards,
Tom

Chris,

Perhaps this website helps: http://www.theairforcechapel.be/the-role-of-honour.html

Scroll down to "349".

Most helpful as the records Jean Moureau and Jean Morau have got mixed up.

Re: 349 Sqn Jun 1944

ClinA-78,

Unfortunately, I don't have that history of 349 Sqn. Would you be so kind as to provide the full names of the following:

Henry F. Bailly (158234)
M. M. Siraut (138885)
A. Uydens (153168)
Albert A. van de Velde (123067)

Also there was a British NCO flying with 349, F/Sgt. D. Blair. Do you have his full name and/or service number?

Thanks.
Tom

Re: 349 Sqn Jun 1944

This has been quite useful, but might I add a few requests?

Service numbers:
Van Molkot
Bragard
Moureau

Full name:
Paul Albert Jules D Siroux

Full name and service numbers:
J Moreau (not Moureau)
D Clarke
Denis A Smerdon

And I seek clarification on one name:
Jean Ester, 127452. I have him as claiming a damaged Bf 109 on July 26, 1944 as a F/O. But I also have him with 350 Sqn as a Sgt, making claims in 1942, but POW on August 16, 1942. Did the 350 Sqn Ester escape and go to 349 Sqn? Or do we have two different (Jean) Ester pilots?

Enjoy!

Frank.
