    Default Sunderland L5806 230 Sqn 25/26-7-1942

    Listed by Errol Martyn in his "For Your Tomorrow" Vol. 1, page 226, with RNZAF casualties:
    F/O (Nav) Jack S. BENTLEY - NZ402129, and
    F/O (Nav) Albert G.B. WILLIAMS - NZ401450.
    In text: "All "12" crew commemorated on the Alamein Memorial.
    I've "13" names and looking for a confirmation of the crew. Besides Bentley and Williams also:
    F/Lt Ephraim H. BROWN - 41777 (from N.Ireland);
    F/Lt William A. CHAPMAN - 76468;
    P/O Eric E.T. CATTEMULL - 104595;
    P/O Kenneth F. HARDING - 104580;
    P/O Herbert H. NASH - 63822;
    F/Sgt Leonard BLASHILL - 851447;
    F/Sgt Roland L. MANLEY - SAAF 142664 (confirmed by Winston Brent in his "85 Years of SAAF", page 405);
    Sgt William BULMAN - 536357;
    Sgt Alastair H. MACDONALD - 802508;
    Sgt Amon RIDING - 1104388, and
    Sgt Eric S.C. WILLIAMS - 527375.
    Errol has no answer and wonders whether Ross knows any more.
    Regards,
    Henk.
