The first edition of the A-B "N serials” (published 1977) lists both of these aircraft as “Destroyed in air raid, Montrose 18.7.1942”.

A revised edition, combined with revised L serials was published in 1993; in this volume the date for N7562 has been changed to 18.7.40; the date for N7557 is unchanged.

Was Montrose bombed in 1942 on the exact anniversary of the 1940 bombing (ref Henks recent posting “Unaccounted airmen 18.7.40)? Or was the entry against N7557 in the original edition a typo, which was overlooked when making the corrections for the second edition?
