|400704 - Unaccounted airman - 4-7-1940||Hi Henk
Warner "Blenheim" records P3680 at Dyce with only injury to P/O L Ryan, no fatalities. There is a Death Registration of a James W Mallinson, age 21 at Whitchurch. There are several Whitchurch's in England but Air Britain says this a/c took off from Ternhill in Shropshire and there is a Whitchurch nearby so P5884 looks a good candidate.

|400704 - Unaccounted airman - 4-7-1940||Thanks Dick. I didn't check the Air Britain Serials Book however took my info from the Air Britain Aeromilitaria "Crashes in UK" list. (CTO Wollerton). P5884 indeed looks to be the candidate.
