    W/O Sandelin's service file is available on ancestry.com but sadly barely any mention of the crash is made. Just a form 551. report on accidental death.

    No form 765 or 412.

    Hi Robstitt, what was your interest in this crash? We are hoping to commemorate this next year on the 75th anniversary. We are in touch with the grandson of one of the George Medal winners, and he lives locally and also been in touch with the farmer whose land it came down on

    Graham,

    Researching for 2nd edition of book on Fortress with RAF Coastal Command. Would be interested in any materials you might uncover. Happy to share whatever I have here.

    I know over a year now but I seem to remember that Don McLean was Canadian and was identified but his name not on this thread

    I don’t think he MacLean who died

    Kind regards Paul

    Hello Paul:

    P/O Donald Harry McLean, RCAF, J/16692, was one of the four that survived.

    Regards:
