    Hello,

    UK.

    BENNETT, MEAGER, MOORE & POPE, 23 MU, Hamilcar I LA714.

    I believe there has been an error here; Hamilcar I LA714 was lost at Arnhem on 17 September, 1944. The Hamilcar involved in this incident was most likely, 33 MU, Hamilcar I LA716, that hit ground on approach on test flight, Lyneham, 9 May, 1944.

    Col.
