    Having looked at the scanned service files of both crew members of the 404 Sqn Beaufighter NE3?? lost on 24 March 1945, both NE339 and NE399 are mentioned in different messages. But, NE339 is consistantly mentioned that month in the ORB with this crew so I now guess the mention of NE399 is a contemporary typo.
