    R7195 Vb 129 Sqn Grimsetter 1710 hrs. Cat Ac. Training. Heavy landing which collapsed port leg. Went round again and belly landed. Sgt N.E.Rushmere 1331676.

    Also on Oct 17, 1942

    EN866 Vb 129 Sqn Grimsetter 1200 hrs. Cat Ac. Landed with drift, swung off runway tipped onto nose. Sgt S.A.Rushmere 1321676.

    Although there are differences in these records (initials and service No) I guess misreading of records and one of the same pilot.

    Regards,

    Ian
