    Whitley T4294, 612 Squadron, 22 February 1941

    You need

    AIR81/5216 Pilot Officer J B Hatchwell, Sergeant K R W Sims, Sergeant D J Appleton, Sergeant G Campbell, Sergeant G Archer, Sergeant W Foots: injured; aircraft crashed on return from operational flight, Whitley T4294, 612 Squadron, 22 February 1941. Note: Related file: 5651


    But Sgt W. Foots would hazard a guess as


    William Foots 553250 1934 Royal Air Force

    Hi Paul,

    Yes, I found the link for the casualty file and have the details on the other 3 crew, but unfortunately can`t get hold of a copy of the file due to the pandemic.

    Thanks for details on Foots. I think you`re correct with this chap being William Foots. Part of this crew came down on North Rona in Whitley T4321, so I think
    one of my 3 would be George Archer. But still no wiser with Campbell who was not on the N.Rona aircraft.

    Thanks Paul.

    It would appear William Foots survived the war too.

    Still not had any luck with the other two Archer and Campbell, might have to wait until the NA is open again.
