Hi, Can anyone shed any light as to why this Flight, which was lost, according to Henke, (Many thanks to his research) why was there a mixture of different squadrons on this flight and could anyone tell me what their mission was when they were lost. I am researching David Woodbine Parish, whose brother John Neville Woodbine Parish died the previous year whilst with H.M.S. Heron. Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. Their father Francis Woodbine Parish died in 1921 after being wounded in WW1. They were connected to the Gladstone Family in Hawarden Flintshire.
