    The Aldergrove station ORB had the following for EV954:

    February 16th 1945, “A flying accident occurred in which Liberator EV.954, captained by F/O Cox, P.C.E. flew into high land during an O.F.E. F/O Cox, P.C.E., P/O Fenwick, J.G., and Sgt Howden, W. sustained injuries, whilst the remainder of the crew were killed. (F/L Faulkner, K.D., P/O Whitney, A.L., F/O Sim, P.G. F/O Matthews, E.R. Sgt Morgan, J.E., Sgt Benwell, H.E., Sgt Bladon, A.).”

    Allan Lloyd Whitney was RCAF.

    Hello,

    Re: Liberator EV954.

    P/O Fenwick, is actually, AUS436230 P/O Garnet James FENWICK RAAF, who was, as stated, injured.

    The older brother of Garnet Fenwick RAAF, AUS421035 F/L (W.Op./Air Gnr.) George Walter John FENWICK MiD RAAF, lost his life on 26 April, 1945, when No.86 Sqn Liberator KH338, failed to return from an anti-U-boat patrol in the Skaggerak area.
