    Default 1941 Unaccounted - Henk Welting's File Updates

    1. Who was killed in Hurricane Z7072 of 232 Sqd on October 25th 1941?

    "Engine cut, lost height and crash-landed near Ouston."

    2. Who was killed in Hurricane Z3182 of 133 Sqd on October 27th 1941?

    "Crashed at Rosharkin, Ulster. Probably loss of control in cloud."

    3. Who went missing in Spitfire AD250 of 129 Sqd on October 28th?

    "Sortie to shoot down drifting balloon. In sea 10 miles off Littlehampton, Sussex."

    Any info appreciated.

    Regards
    John
