    Default Whitley P5091 lost 8-9/10/40

    Hi guys

    Reference Bill Chorley's Bomber Command Losses Volume 1

    Night of 8-9 October 1940, Whitley P5091 crashed west of Snape, Yorkshire and all crew killed. One of those listed is Midshipman Haddington RN, no initials.

    Can anyone identify him? Can't find his name on CWGC.

    Cheers
    Brian
