    My notes had Bolingbroke 10195 crashing on 12 February 1944, with the dead being Hemingway and R/91753, F/Sgt. D.K. Wilson, RCAF. The aircraft burned completely after crashing. CWGC databases lists date of death of Wilson as 8 February 1944 and Hemingway as 9 February 1944, my notes now corrected.

    No one was killed in the crash of N4919, see http://www.peakdistrictaircrashes.co...ninesn4919.htm the injuries to the three named airmen are comfirmed by the No.2 (O)AFU ORB and the names of the two stated to be uninjured were not recorded.
