    Not one of the BEF RE diaries that I have, unfortunately. I believe that Drew has it copied though. I've messaged him

    The answer, well nearly a complete one is in this thread from 2011: Unknown Hurricane Pilot, Mid May 1940, Belgium The opening post was by the grandson of Mr Creasy (then 94yrs), who wanted to identify the pilot shot down, so he could tell his family what happened. The relative, Rob Creasy has not logged on since August 2011, but his email address is there.

    There are other threads on 232 Field Company, they do not refer to France / Belgium in 1940.

  7. Thank you guys
    This was a fantastic help
    If this is confirmed by MR R Creasy who i have emailed, there is a strong possibility I know who this pilot was.
    I have been researching this pilot for more than 20 years and I also have researchers in Belgium on the ground doing the same.
    it was them who gave me the name of this man's grandfather
    So hopefully soon we will convince CWGC and they can put his name on the stone of this pilots final resting place.
    thanks again Gordon
