224 Coastal Command Squadron

Hi,
I am looking for the information about aircraft No. 7343 (Z.224) from RAF 224 Coastal Command Squadron from Leuchars (Scotland). I am especially interested with information from the first half of 1940. A/C was operated by P/O A.J Pearson and P/O B.L. Fox. Could anybody recommend me some books, websites, how to receive information about crews relatives?

There would be a letter before the serial. 224 Sqn's F540 is available to be downloaded from the National Archives site. Contacting relatives will be harder especially when the 2 names you quote are relatively common

Re: 224 Coastal Command Squadron

Hello once again,

For some reason I couldn't post the following due to - "site down due to maintenance"!

Use this: See also: http://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk/.../41/n7298.html

For more on 41200 Anthony Brien John PEARCE RAF, see

http://www.unithistories.com/officer...icers_p01.html scroll down to "PEARCE".

Pearce was wounded on 23 April 1940, when No.224 Hudson I N7249 was shot down by AA fire from an allied vessel at Andalsnes - for details, see: Royal Air Force Coastal Command Losses of the Second World War Vol.1 1939-1941/Ross McNeill, p.29.
