    Hi Henk
    Baring-Gould,22, is registered at Worcester which makes him possible for T7160, but I can't find Biglas Weir on the map.Hughes,28, is registered at Sleaford, Lincolnshire. Puddy didn't come up so may be in Scotland
    Regards
    Dick

    I was concerned that posting this next batch of answers from the F1180s would have put Henk under too much pressure to update after his request to remove his user name.

    I now post them to contine his legacy on RAF Commands.

    Hughes confirmed by F1180 as second fatlity on Proctor P6234
    Pilot P/O F Vocetka, 82585 also killed
