138 Sqdn Halifax Loss

December 20 2006, 2:42 PM 


I looked up Sgt S J Smith on the CWGC website and found this entry for him

It states that he was Son of James and Mary Ann Smith; husband of Jamesina Smith, of Armadale, West Lothian.

He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

The entry for this loss in RAF Bomber Command Losses 1943 by W R Chorley is as follows:-
15 September 1943 - 138 Squadron Halifax II JN910 NF-K took off 1759 from RAF Tempsford on an SOE operation named Operation Flat 22 and headed for a dropping zone code named Kufer 208. While homebound, hit by flak and crashed in the Baltic off R├╝genwalde. Those who died are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. The list of crew onboard as follows, all died with the exception of Sgt A S Dove who was taken POW.
F/O E C Hart
Sgt A S Dove
Sgt K C Windsor RCAF
F/O J D L Cloutier RCAF
Sgt K R Norie
Sgt L C Gay
Sgt S J Smith
Sgt W H Mudge

I hope the above is of some assistance to you.
