    Alex. Have gone through all movement cards and there is a notation on one card dealing with a crash landing on the correct date at Docking. This is Hudson V serial AM-865

    Hello Richard,
    I have "RR-R" for this date but serial number AM864.
    And the names of the crew are not the same as in the first post "RR-K" ?

    R (AM864) crashed at Digby killing all crew.

    K crashed at Docking with Observer shot through foot

    O crashed at Docking from the earlier strike that night killing the Nav.

    Hello Ross,
    Thank you for the clarification.
    So serial numberof "RR-K" or "RR-O" must have been AM865.
