    Hello,, I was hoping to find any additional information you gentlemen may have on this crash. The pilot of this air craft was William James Dennis Miller, who at the time was 19 years old. I am asking because he was my great uncle. Any information you have would be very great fully recived.
    thanks. Laura

    Hello Laura,

    The only additional info I have is that the crash occured at 12:09 while the aircraft was on a formation flight. Sgt Miller served with 'B' flight of the squadron. The aircraft had previously been allocated to 610 Sqn on 5 January 1942 and went to 222 Sqn on 25 October 1942.

    Keith
