    Default 1663 Conversion Unit ORB - 16 Nov 44

    At 2200 hours on Thursday the 16th of November 1944, Handley Page Halifax II JP128 (OO-P) of D Flight, 1663 Conversion Unit, was returning to its home base at RAF Rufforth in Yorkshire, when it crashed into Grasslands Farm. I have various news reports, citations for H&A, crew details and the write up from Sqn Ldr Ron Waite's book ‘Death or Decoration,' but I don't have the details from the ORB. Would any kind forumite be in a position to send me the relevant pages, please? Unfortunately, living in Africa I can't get to TNA. There also appears to be some photos of the post incident scene, but I have no idea where to obtain these.

    Very many thanks in advance
