    Default F/Sgt Murdo Donald Davidson Macfarlane RAAF

    From Elizabeth Bay, New South Wales, this 27 year old was reportedly killed over the North Sea serving as a Navigator on Wellingtons on 24 April 1944 aged 27. Numbered 432219, his name is among those listed on the Runnymede Memorial.

    I cannot find his unit under the CWGC website or in the Bomber Command losses book for 1944. Can anyone shine a light on whether he was Coastal Command, Squadron number, the aircraft number, names of the crew members and what actually happened to the aircraft?

    The information will be much appreciated.

    Hi Malcolm

    He was with 21 OTU and was lost in Wellington X, LN878 which was lost on a navigation exercise over the North Sea (Chorley BCL 7)

    I totally forgot about OTU's! I am just back from a holiday, so I must need another one!

    Thanks to you I can now access all the information that I need.

    Much appreciated.
