    From a old 2004 thread, Henk contributed this:

    For LAC (Wop) Hugh C. BLINMAN, 1716531, I've on file:

    The SBA (Standard Beam Approach)Station was overrun at Flixton airfield by Liberator 42-50306 "Dragon Lady" of 446BG killing two RAF-men in the hut and the entire crew of the Liberator when the a/c swung off. Second RAF-man killed in the accident was Cpl (Wop) Leslie G. REYNOLDS, 1508795.

    Another old thread (2006) proved useful for TURTON, it states:

    My Father FO George Turton, aged 38, was killed in an enemy bombing raid on Gosport Airfield, Near Portsmouth, on 27 April 1944 while serving with RAF Movement Control.

    G'day

    Harvey was killed after colliding with Hurricane 5701 during an aerial exercise. The crash took place at 14:30 hours at Cannaan Village which is four miles from Kentville, Nova Scotia.

    The pilot of Hurricane 5701 was J15294 Flying Officer R. M. Brooks.

    Other pilots taking part indicated that their windscreens iced up completely while flying through cloud completely obscuring their vision.

    Cheers...Chris
