    Default Some Defiant pilots

    Morning All,

    I am after some pilots who went through 60 OTU in 191-1942. The following pilots were involved in various accidents and maybe some of you could help me to identify them (in case some of you had the accident cards):

    Sgt F.K. COATES (11.12.41 - N1754)
    P/O DANIEL (04.01.42 - N1799)
    Sgt HAIGHT (29.01.42 - L7023)
    P/O J.A. McCAGUE (03.01.42 - N1743)
    Sgt J.H. MORRISON (05.01.42 - L7032)
    P/O W.P. WOODWARD (31.10.41 - T4003). He was Canadian

    Many thanks in anticipation

    Phil
