196 Squadron W/Os Ferry & Harvey

Post by Mary »

The crew of LK147 KIA when it crashed in May 1945 usually flew together.
However on two ocassions the W/O David Welch did not fly.
4th May 1945 W/O was F/L D.F?. FERRY
4th November 1944 W/O was F/S J. HARVEY who also flew with pilot F.A. BROWN
Any further information on FERRY or HARVEY please?

Hello Mary,

The closest detail i could find is JG Harvey who lost his life on the 10th of April 1945, not May ( could be a typo either way ) ...... being that LK147 was lost on the 10th May 1945
Cheers,
John
