    Default Aviation authors for Wales - Edward Doylerush and Roy Sloan

    Hi all,

    I found there were published following books about incidents in North Wales:
    Edward Doylerush - 'No Landing Place'
    Roy Sloan - 'Wings of War over Gwynedd'

    As there is nothing about crash landing of Botha near Conwy on 19.12.1941 I would like to ask if just in case anyone would be possible to put me in touch with any of the authors?
    I know enough details about the accident form the RAF side but I am after local details like place of landing, police reports, witnesses etc.

    TIA

    Many thanks Paul for check.
    I am afraid it is not mentioned as the crash landing was successful with some damage but no injuries or death one of many...

    I've only just seen this thread. Eddie Doylerush is a good friend of mine and I was talking to him on the phone just ten minutes ago! I'll ask him for you.

    I've just spoken to Eddie, who lives near Conwy, but he doesn't know anything about this Botha. Do you know the serial number and/or unit?
