Leonard Philip Redcliff Hockey born in Bristol 30/04/1913, was a flight lieutenant and gunnery officer with 75 Squadron at RAF Feltwell. Apparently he was a businessman in Bristol, UK before joining the RAF Reserves.
His Wellington was shot down in 1940 and he became a prisoner of war at Sagen or possibly Laufen in Germany.
Very shortly after the War, Mr. Hockey met the sister of Francis Labouchere-Sparling, one of the crew members who died on that flight, in London. We do not know what happened to Mr. Hockey after the War, although we are certain that he did not settle in the UK. Canada is a strong possibility though efforts to find locate him have not been successful.
Does anyone have any record of him after 1945 or suggestions as to how I may proceed in my efforts to discover what happened to him?
