Re: 349 Sqn Jun 1944

Frank,

Check out my previous post regarding the service numbers for Bragard, Moureau and Van Molkot.

Moreau de Melen, Jean Fernand René Gérard (138884)

http://surfcity.kund.dalnet.se/belgium_moreau.htm

Smerdon, Denis Anthony (1478913) per AIR 78

Clarke, Douglas Forrester, DFC, CdG Belge (AFC post war) (NZ417018)

http://www.aucklandmuseum.com/war-me...otaph%2Fsearch

Also from Johnnie Houlton's book Spitfire Strikes (page 192):

"It was about this time that 349 (Belgian) Squadron was short of experienced sub-section leaders, and Doug Clark (sic) was seconded from 485 Squadron to fly with the Belgians. He had an enjoyable short tour, sharing the destruction of a FW 190; and the Belgian Command marked their appreciation of his efforts by awarding him the Belgian Croix de Guerre."

Regards,
Tom
