Sorry can't help but there are still some remains of the airfield there, pillar boxes were in evidence when I worked nearby in the St Georges Hospital up to year 2000

Possibly Wing Commander Petrus 'Dutch' Hugo SAAF.

"He "escaped" from HQ after a couple of months and took over the Hornchurch Wing, but soon left to join No.322 Wing in North Africa, in November, 1942."

From http://samilitaryhistory.org/vol014dt.html

Hope this helps, Dave
