    The No.7 (C)OTU ORB isn't that helpful, it names Pennington & Tyler but none of the others. It states that 4 were killed including the two names officers.

    A second aircraft was also lost on the same exercise, it is recorded later in the ORB as found on the beach at Ballymena, 6 killed but only 2 bodies found.

    The funeral was held on the 6th Jan.

    Cheers Col

    At least that fixes two of them, looks like at least two of the others were in the second aircraft, does the ORB identify the other aircraft?

    It doesn't give serial numbers for either aircraft, it gives a/c No.66 & No.70 of 4 Squadron 7 OTU.
