    Hi Henk,

    F1180 for L4458 has been amended to go from 5 injured to 4 injured & 1 died later.

    Pilot confirmed to have survived to be killed later so one of the others must have died later.

    Regards
    Ross

    Proudman is probably the airman from L4458

    Fracture of the base of the skull accidentally and by misadventure sustained through an aeroplane crashing at Furse Park field, Luscott Farm in the parish of Ashford in the county of Devon, on the 25th April, 1941

    Confirm Proudman was killed in this accident, he lived just over a day before passing away

    After much detective work, I now have the names of the crew for CCN Bailey, William Augustus Hughes-Hughes, Michael Duncan Young and Herbert Reginald Stillman, who all survived the accident for L4458
    A group of us is going to visit the crash site tomorrow, advised by a local farmer
    I have already been in touch with Stillman's daughter
