    Malcolm,
    Refer to your message # 3: BARSKY and WILLIAMS (registered Weston super Mare) possibly on LX216.
    LX216 lost 22-11-11944 with 3 (P)AFU. Did you mean to say that both airmen may have been on LX219 (control lost at night; dived into ground 1 mile S of Northleach/Glos. Already have as a casualty on this aircraft Sgt [Pilot] Sydney J. DATSON - 12335305).
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk

    I must have read the wrong line in the A-B book. Barsky and Williams are both rgistered in Weston super Mare whilst Datsun is Cirencester, so they are not on the same aircraft.

    Barsky and Williams therefore still unknown
