According to the ORB for No 1 O.A.D.U., this Beaufort was reported missing on 31 July 1942 on a flight between R.A.F. Portreath, and R.A.F. North Front, Gibraltar. This is confirmed by the book 'The Beaufort File'. I would be grateful if someone could confirm the circumstances of the loss of this aircraft, and the fate of the air crew. This is for a project I am working on in relation to R.A.F. Portreath and the O.A.D.U. based there.

I have drawn a blank so far. Many thanks, Rob PALMER
