    Hello

    The casualty pack in AIR 81/953 might have the answer, but the serial number is not quoted in the index / reference. Battle aircraft crashed at Les Corvees-les-Yys, France, 13 June 1940 according to the catalogue reference.

    Hello Joss,
    Thank you for the reply.
    Yes , no serial number hence the "Y" number's as given by Henk.

    Hello Alex, Joss

    I have seen this file at TNA in Kew and unfortunately it does not have the serial number, like many of the other Fairey Battle AIR 81 Casualty Files for June 1940.
    The full crew names are;
    F/Lt. Arthur Douglas Joseph Martin,
    Sgt. Ernest Frank Wilton Curtis and
    Sgt. George Hammond Kettlewell.

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.

    Hello Alex,

    The Casualty packs (AIR 81 series) at Kew were not released when the late Henk was with us. Hence they provide détails that he couldn't get at the time. This applies for many published works as well.

    Regards

    Joss
