Guys,

Just been researching Sgt. James McCairns diaries.

He refers to having passed a not unpleasant time in hospital, being well fed and being allowed to write home to his mother, with few attempts at interrogation. Here he was joined by another ‘Tommy’, the nationality of his new friend was not in doubt, ‘a real airman, A.C.Potter, a member of a Red Cross crash boat, A.S.R.S., whose body had been riddled at the same time as his launch, by three low-flying ME109’s who delighted in raking with fire the huge red cross on the yellow background.’

HSL 108 was lost a few days before and he was not part of that crew.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Regards,

Nick
