    Default 2 Halifax accidents

    Hello,

    They are probably somewhere in Vol.8 of Bill Chorley's book (Bomber Command Losses), but so far I was unable to locate in this book the loss of two Halifaxes:

    L9565 (2 Nov 42) - 102.CF
    L9584 (3 Nov 42) - 102.CF

    Does anyone know more about the crew in board for each accident?

    Thanks

    Phil

    Both aircraft swung on t/o at Pocklington. Nothing in RAF Pocklington War Diary by Mike Usherwood.
