    Hello

    The crash of Wellington MF557 was reported in the Western Daily Press of November 12th 1947:

    Shortly before midnight on Monday, a Wellington bomber attached to Finingley R.A.F. Station, near Doncaster, crashed at Beech Hill railway crossing, 10 miles from Doncaster. The pilot, Sgt. Cyril Wallace (23), or Ellerker Avenue, Doncaster, was killed and the navigator, Raymond M. Gilroy (28), of Peterborough and the wireless operator, Geoffrey F. Morgan (21), of Southport, were injured.

    Regards

    Simon
