This blog is all about remembering the Fallen.
I found this message in my inbox this morning as I was cleaning it up.
Hello, thanks for your wonderful blog. Nothing about Captain D. Porter and Lieut. W.H. Rogers? They died on February 6, 1944 near my town (Reggio Emilia).
I felt it was important to follow up on it. I did not have anything about this crew so I asked for more information.
The reply was as fast as a Mosquito!
Mosquito FB-VI serial HJ674, 23 Squadron, lost in an intruder mission over SORBOLO (Province of Parma), from ALGHERO, in the night of February 6,1944. Crew F/Lt (64901) David Leslie PORTER (pilot) RAFVR – PoW and F/O (147669) William Herbert ROGERS (nav.) RAFVR – killed.
This is how I still start…
I know some of my readers might help with this.
