    Henk,

    Just for the record Henley L.3271 was operating with 'B' Flight from RAF Carew Cheriton when aircraft caught fire in the air and crashed; pilot P/O W.H.H. Mussett and Observer 545993 T/Cpl D. Price suffered serious injuries from burns.

    Kind regards,

    Tim

    Hello Dennis & Col,
    I had BELLRINGER (unknown source) on Anson N4939 of 1 AONS (Wigtown). Hit hill in bad visibility 28-1-1941 and crashed Am Binein 1 mile N of Goat Fell, Isle of Arran. Died 4-2-1941 of severely burns and shock in a hospital at Ayr/Heathfield.
    Have one's doubts now reading that he is registered 'doas'.
    Regards,
    Henk.
