No this is wrong Peter Bateman-Jones survived their war dying in 2005. I remember him well. Currently am sitting to his younger brother (my father).

Dear Pierre,

Your information re Peter Bateman-Jones is correct. My father was leading aircraftman  David Hamilton in the 164 British Argentine Squadron. He had such a high regard for him. Hard to think that they were young men in their early twenties! My father died in 1994 and I cherish all his stories. Peter Bateman Jones had been on a sortie into Germany and crash landed in Holland and did not survive the crash landing. My dad was another wonderful man.
