David I'm in Bristol. My research has been very much a broad brush approach, seeking to put most of the elements in and then perhaps tweaking what I have by the addition of more detail as and when it becomes available. All my data has come from published sources, I read the books and pull out the plums so to speak.

Leendart, the Hurricane loss is mentioned in US Losses but with no detail. ABS records that it was repaired and went on to serve with 41 OTU with which untit it crashed on approach at Cranage 31/3/44.

Paul Thanks for the info on the Whirlwind pilot.

regards
