Visitor Comments: My great uncle, Flight Lieutenant Allan Frayne Penhale, was a Wireless Operator / Air Gunner with 161 Squadron. His flight, Hudson T9445, out of Tempsford, was shot down over Belgium, by a night fighter / anti-aircraft (possibly American) during Operation Norvic in the early hours of March 21, 1945 with the loss of the whole crew. Thanks for helping me understand more about what he was doing and why. I will remember.

Visitor Comments: we have discovered my great great aunts fiance Sgt david fisher davies was a member of 138 squadron. As a family we knew nothing of this, he was a gunner on Lancasters as far as the story went. He was on board his Halifax on January 8th 1944 when it crashed into tetworth hill, on its way back from a mission to Belguim.All the crew and 3 belgian agents died. If anyone can tell us more we would be very grateful. He was awarded the distinguished flying medal whilst at Tempsford, we dont know why, Thank you for reading my message, Helen Lawrence

My late beloved Uncle, John Fraser Carnegie D.F.C.  !09 Pathfinder Squadron, who died August last year, and flew wooden wonders out of R.A.F. Tempsford, would have loved to have seen this website. Woodbury Hall, Sandy, Bedfordshire, SG19 2HR. was in all probability connected with Tempsford. Thank you for creating this wonderful website.

Kind regards,

Alastair Carnegie.
