|February 1943 - 5||Malcolm,
GRIFFITH (BR472 - 22 Feb) was not in my files. Pilot lost control during aerobatics and dived into ground 5 miles S of Darragh Main, Libya.
For N6374 (25 Feb) have TWO casualties both named WRIGHT and deaths registered at Grantham & West Kesteven:
P/O (Pilot) Stuart M. WRIGHT - RCAF J/21909, and
Sgt (Pilot) Kenneth W. WRIGHT - 1238472.
All other losses same as in your basic thread.
