Another query.

Hurricane R4099 is listed in ABS and in Air Crashes in the Lake District as having crashed at Crosby, Cumberland 25 August 1941 killing the pilot RJ Davies 1058458 of 59 OTU.

Yet elsewhere (BoBT&N and Fighter Command Losses of the Second World War) say that this a/c went missing after pilot AR Covington 42591 baled out over Dorset after combat on 1st October 1940. Men of the BoB (wisely) does not specify the a/c involved in this combat.

I have looked at Covington's combat report but it does not say which a/c he was flying, I don't know whether this is usual.

Has anyone sorted this out please?

Thanks
