    Yes silly me forgot to include date which was as you state August 11, 1939
    Pilot S/L G F Whistondale #16259 is F/O George Frederick Whistondale RAF (16259).

    Sergeant Bareham is
    Sergeant Harold John William 'Bish' Bareham #564527 later DFM and commissioned 44413

    Aircraftman Whitehead

    is I believe Canadian George William Whitehead #533230 later DFM and MiD and 53738/ C47184 (Canada)
