  3. Forum dedicated to discussing Coastal Command Losses. The Coastal Command losses from 1939-1941 are well covered in Ross McNeill's book RAF Coastal Command Losses: Aircraft & Crew Losses 1939-1941 -Volume 1. Ross's plans to publish Volume 2 and 3 are however on hold. This forum is intended as a stop-gap till that time Ross completes his project.
