    Hi according to this site: http://sas.raf38group.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1957
    Sgt. Frederick Noakes, 902559 (believed to have joined the RAFVR at some point after Sept 1939). Flying in Wellington L7809 of 38 Sqn on 11/12 Sept 1940, his aircraft crashed near Ostend with the loss of all the crew.

    Needs verification.

    Hello Pavel,

    Thank you.
    Your reply agree's with the entry in AB's "L1000-N9999".
    Oddly Chorley "BCL vol1 revised does not give a serial number .
