    Hello Phil,
    Not sure of the dates, but AB's AA100-AZ999 has the following.

    AA812 - 1 PRU
    Bounced on landing and overturned, Topcliffe, date given as 24/1/42.
    AA813 1 PRU
    Crashed on Chesil Bank, Dorset, on ferry flight from Gibraltar, date given as 25/1/42.

    But due to the details of pilot's there must have been two other a/c .

    many thanks
    AA813 crashed in the UK Following Alex ,however Barber went down in the area of "Mont-Saint-Michel" out of fuel , he ditched or Bailed out ,F/O Anderson M.C.B. (RTD) who was on the same flight from Gibraltar with Barber , went down at Chesnil Bank so I think he was on AA813
