    Hello Paul,

    Thanks for ferreting out those names. Jennings was definitely the Observer because of his rank and service number. In my experience any enlisted crewman with a service number in the 580.../581... range had been trained as a pilot/navigator or observer.

    Regards,

    Martin.
