    Default Defiant T3985 of 125 Squadron 25 October 1941

    Would anyone have the initials and/or service number of Sgt BAYLISS who successfully baled out of Defiant T3985 of 125 Squadron on 25 October 1941 appromiately 2207 hours when they hit a barrage balloon cable please .

    The pilot Sgt. C.A.G.Dale (NZ402170) RNZAF baled out too low and his parachute failed to open and he was killed.

    Any information would be appreciated.
