    Hi Alex, few bits and pieces:

    21 - Wellington X - 6(C) OTU - HE546.
    Czechoslovak crew in training for 311 Sq. Flew into sea 3 miles east of Ross Island, Cumberland. Two missing, two rescued by the ship towing the target for bombing.

    23 - Wellington Ic - 311 Sqn - Z1147.
    Crashed after both engine failure on delivery flight from 311 Sq at Talbenny to Pembrey, crew safe. 311 Sq was handing over Wellingtons as it was undergoing retraining on Liberators.
