Dear friends,
I'm a italian researcher and historian.

With my friends we are investigating about history of our town Salerno during world war II. We recently find a crash site of a RAF aircraft on a mountain near Salerno. During our research we find names of crew. Now I'm writing a essay about this aircraft and his crew.

The pilot was Albert de Wet Nussey. He was born in Klerksdorp on 7th Sept 1924 and was educated at Kingswood College in Grahamstown. He joined the SA Airforce on 18th Jan 1942 at the age of 17 and qualified as a pilot at 24 Air School in August 1943.

Hi there, I don't have anything specific from 150 Squadron, I'll search my archives and see if I have any emails from people related to or were part of 150 Squadron.
I've added your article in the request for information as well, just in cas someone picks it up in a search engine.
Good luck.
