Sgt Twitchen Beaufort N1146 Missing 10/9/40Dear All, I am reaserching the loss of Beaufighter L9797 that crashed into a row of houses in Ashington on the 6th June 1940. I think I have most of that story sorted now, however I am interested in a member of the crew that survived, a Sgt Twitchen (590984). He was the Obs on when L9797 crashed, however I have been told by Ross that he was killed on the 10th September 1940 when Beaufighter N1146 went missing on ops to Bolougne.

Does this mean he was something other than a member of the Commonwealth (Dutch/Norwegian?) or have I not been looking properly. I was also wondering why he would be the Observer in L9797 but the pilot in N1146. Any information would be great. Johnnie ....Read More.johnnie214 on 7th December 2007 03:22:44
