    ANDERSON - not in register for E&W or Scotland. CWGC has place of burial as Woolwich
    DOUGALL - there is an Alexander Dougall, age 21, registered at Weston (?super Mare - near Bristol)
    DOWLE, age 25, is registered at North Kesteven which would fit with Waddington
    DUFF, age 56, registered at Aylesbury (RAF Hospital, Halton?)
    HUGHES, age 19, registered at Luton.

    Apart from Dowle, there are no obvious links to your proposed losses.

    Regards,

    David

    Both the 16 EFTS Magister and N5135 were none fatal accidents.

    August 27th 1941, “Anson N5135 P/O Bilecki crash landed in a small field in Bute after being
    lost in bad weather. No one hurt.”

    There wasn't an entry in the 16 EFTS ORB for the Magister but I do have the 1180 for it. The serial number was written in as L6808 and both 8s were over written with 9s, I know that L6909 was used by 5 EFTS that years as one of their pilots put it through a stone wall.

    The aircraft was being flown by LAC Peter Thomson Muirhead (later F/O, DFC, killed 21/07/43).

    I have just got a Halton Roll of Honour which will in due course be available on the net. I will check but there could be other 'brats' in your list onf unsolved airmen.

    Anderson died from wounds received in Air Raid. Based at North Weald. (Halton Roll of Honour)
