    Colin Cummings' 'Though Without Anger,' page 573 has Dakota KG491 FTR from a supply-dropping mission. Crew as follows:

    F/O Dennis Jack Herbert AFC
    F/Sgt Alexander Robertson
    W/O Robert Harold Durrant
    P/O Sydney John Elias
    plus two other non-R.A.F. personnel.

    The 62 Sqn ORB gives the code letter 'R' for the Dakota.

    Regards

    Simon
