    Default 101 Sqn Lanc SR-C Jan 4, 1945

    I am told that a 101 Sqn Lanc - 'C-Charlie' - crash-landed in a snowstorm at Ludford Magna on Jan 4, 1945. I believe all the crew got out ok, but think the aircraft was a write-off.
    I can't find any reference to this in the Ludford ORB.
    Can anyone confirm the event on this date?
    Does anyone know the Lanc's registration number?

    Francis K Mason confirms this in his book, "The Avro Lancaster".
