    Both Peter James Bull and Walter Thomas Douglas are listed as being with 5 (C) O.T.U. in the scans of the Grave Registration Reports on their respective pages on the CWGC website.

    Just to clarify, No 3 (Coastal) Operational Training Unit at R.A.F. Chivenor was redesignated as No. 5 (Coastal) Operational Training Unit on 1 August 1941, with no change of personnel or function. A new No. 3 (C) O.T.U. was formed at R.A.F. Cranwell, with personnel and aircraft detached from R.A.F. Silloth. The Anson referred to was part of No. 5 (C) O.T.U. at the time of its loss.

    "Does this mean that Walter was in an Anson of 3 OTU based at Haverfordwest when he died????"

    Cheers Rob - So an Anson of 5 (C) OTU for sure - but based Chivenor or Haverfordwest? (or maybe both!)
