    My analysis says a mistake got in to that crew list.

    Sigfred Johannes Christophersen: CWGC - Age 29, No.12 (P)AFU; FreeBMD - Age 29, Grantham (7a 392, no other males of fighting age on that page or adjacent pages).
    Charles Allen: CWGC - Age 43, No.18 RC; FreeBMD - Age 43, Westminster.
    Frank Pearce: CWGC - Age 22, No.6 AACU; FreeBMD - Age 22, St Asaph; No.41 OTU ORB - August 9th 1943, “During the night an Oxford aircraft crashed near Rhyl & became a complete wreck. W/Op Sgt Pearce was killed. F/O East – Engineer Officer of this Station visited the wrecked aircraft.”

    Hello,

    Re: Frank PEARCE/6 AACU. Possibly involved in this incident:

    10-8-1943
    6 AACU
    Oxford I X6807

    Abandoned 1.5m W of St. Asaph, Derbyshire, after vibration affected control while on searchlight cooperation.

    See:The Oxford, Consul & Envoy File/Hamlin/A-B/111

    To make a small correction here, St Asaph is in Denbighshire, not Derbyshire.

    Dave,

    Too true, Thanks. The A-B Ref I used does quote Derbyshire.

    Hello,
    Thanks for the information given.
    Have you ever known Henk to be wrong before ?
    I except sometimes he got the airmen's date of death wrong, but anything else ?

    Thanks
