    Thanks Dennis. Used the search facilities of the RAF Commands Forum in vain. Strange that I missed this aircraft completely in my files. Are you still updating http://skynet.ie/~dan/war/henkthreads ?

    I will get around to it sometiem but I seem to have less time to do these anymore, I will try to keep on top of them.

    Ross has mentioned I think that the search function is not yet workign properly since the forum update last year so if searching use google via the

    for example

    410305 site:rafcommands.com

    There are a few dupicate date threads now so it will be a bit of a struggle to find them, I'm falling behind!

    Dennis,
    Ignore my last message; used the wrong link; forgot to add an 's' after henk.
    Apologize the inconvenience.
    Henk.

    Hello

    P/O (Pilot) David H. GITTINS - 86319 - the Graves Registration Report Form confirms his unit as 24 S.F.T.S., and the National Probate Calendar records that he died at Luton and Dunstable Hospital, so perhaps injured in Magister I P6453.

    Regards

    Simon
