    Errol,

    Thanks for that.

    l'm working on the death of 172546 F/O (Pilot) Eric Bernard Joseph JENSEN RAFVR, of No.36 Sqn. who was killed in an accident at Setif, Algeria, on 24 June, 1944. He is buried at Dely Ibrahim War Cemetery, Algeria. l think l have been provided with a dud serial! No.36 Sqn was operating Mk.XIV's at this time.

    Could you please take a look at the A-B registers, and see if anything matches?

    40 degrees C +, over here in OZ. The bitumen is melting!

    Anything you could do would be appreciated.

    Col.
