|411010 - Unaccounted airmen - 10-10-1941||Hi Henk
I think you have the crews of the 2 Whitleys although I don't have a source that will tell me who was on which a/c apart from what DaveW has provided
Barker,42,Martin,27, Cullen,29, Harding,34, Pollock,21, Pryce,28, Purdy,24, Rigley,28, Roffe,19, Roger,18, Seymour,21, Stoneham,27, Stubberfield,30, and Tucker, 21, are all registered at Caernavon, N Wales and that is the right area for the collision at Llandwrog.I didn't find Smith-Cross on the register but CWGC has him as u/t AG so he may be part of the collision.
Christopher,22, registered at Cirencester, Gloucestershire.This is the right Office for the accident to W6623 near Windrush
Richards,18, registered at Warminster, Wiltshire which is the right area for the Master at Bratton.
Watson,29, registered at Bingham, Northamptonshire
Warner's Blenheim reports no casualties on Blenheim T2333
