    Malcolm,
    HV367 and AR465 not (yet) in my files.
    Agree with DW802, V8547 and AM623. On AM623 have also as casualty nr. 4:
    Sgt (WOp/Ag) Charles W. DARWIN - 994385.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Suggest you double-check AR465 - according to ABS (and M&S) this was written-off on 12-Oct-42 in Chad!
    Believe the one you want is AB465, which was indeed lost in Sicily on 06-Jan-43
