    I have two 180S crashes listed for this date, but I don't have the names of the crews.

    FW110 COA Keeling (Hall?) Farm, Foulsham


    FV975 CTO Westwood Farm, Great Ryburgh, Fakenham, Norfolk

    Leins Graham & Kiddle are all registered on the same page at Norwich Outer Register Office (covers Foulsham)

    Hilsden at Norwich Register Office

    Logic suggests that the three airmen registered at Norwich Outer are connected with FW110.

    However if Hilsden was on the other a/c, FV975 his death should have been registered at Fakenham, Norfolk, unless he was transported to hospital in Norwich.
