Dear Peter,

My name is Neale Hadley, I don't have any information for you but I am interested to know about P-O Lloyd Hadley KIA 10 June 1943. He was a cousin of my fathers, however I have very few relatives left from that time and my father was only very young at that time so I know very little about him.

He grew up in Graceville/Sherwood, Brisbane where most of my family lived at that time and I understand that some officers who served with him are still living in Brisbane.

I would greatly appreciate any information or stories relating to him.

Thank you.

Neale Hadley - (Brisbane)

 

NOTE:- In the book "Strike and Return", it shows Hadley's aircraft being lost on 12 June 1943. The target was Bochum.
