    Default Incorrect Casualities listed under R5572 (Gerard William ENRIGHT was not onboard)

    Hi, In reviewing the casualities for Lancaster R5572 I note that one of those listed is as per below, but this person was not onboard this flight:
    Pilot Officer Gerard William Board ENRIGHT (147316) Navigator Lancaster I R5572 IBCC 1943-06-26 106 Sqdn AIR27 Netherlands Wieringen (Hippolytushoef) Gen

    If you review the corresponding IBCC record it states that ENRIGHT was lost in W4256 (ZN-V) and not R5572. (also note the different burial location from the R5572 crew)

    Is it possible the get the records in your database corrected for R5572?

    So you know, the actual seventh member and pilot of R5572 when it crashed on June 26, 1943 was my father Eric Winks Davidson. He managed to parachute to safety but was captured and remained a POW. You have him listed in your POW database as follows. Hopefully this information can be corrected, to avoid confusion.
    Eric

    Just to note that BCL vol 4 has the correct details.
