    The GRO index of RAF War deaths (overseas and missing) gives his unit as 60 OTU.

    This website:
    http://www.dehavilland.ukf.net/_DH98%20prodn%20list.txt

    Mosquito LR384 FBVI 613/107/251/60OTU Control lost in cloud on night navex dived into sea off Bridport Dorset 25.11.44


    I might suggest Robert Wiliam EVANS RCAF J/26365 as the other crew member. Runnymede contains a 226 Sqn crew and a man from 463 Squadron.

    His Ontario death certificate says presumed "Killed in Flying accident (beleived lost in sea)"
