    105 OTU Wellington X NC713:
    Pilot: W/O. Frederick William Duck (Freddie) 591136 RAF Age 24. Killed
    Nav: W/O. Norman William Wynn 1194206 RAFVR Age 32. Killed
    W/Op/Air/Gnr: W/O. Joseph Donald Ormesher 1070646 RAFVR Age ? Killed
    Wellington NC713 had been airborne for 19 minutes on a local flying sortie and it was W/O. Freddie Duck's first solo flight on this type of aircraft and at night! After experiencing some problems with the engines Freddie requested an emergency landing and was on its finals to the airfield when he allowed the aircraft to stall. The Wellington then dived into the ground before he could recover the aircraft and was totally burnt out. The aircraft came down 3 miles South East of the airfield.
