Subject: Nezbeda

I have a record of Hurricane IIA Z2493 of 310 Sqn based at Dyce crashing in the sea off Aberdeen on 24 October 1941 after the pilot was dazzled by a searchlight beam and lost control. I believe the pilot was Flying Officer Nezbeda. Was this Egon Nezbeda? I have some more details of his escape from the a/c and subsequent rescue.

Hi Keith,
sorry for long delay but your post got lost in spam messages and I have to clear them out.

Yes I remember such a story and yes you are right it was Egon Nezbeda. I have read an article he wrote afterward for Czech Inspectorate General with advice what to do in such a situation but unfortunately it is in Czech only.
I will be thankful if you would like to share more details about this case. You can contact me via email in the top left corner.

Thank you

Pavel

I found an old reference to my Father who was an honoury member of both the Czechoslovak Air Force and the Polish Airforces. I refer to George F R Duffy 44629 whose Log Books I still hold
