    Default N 410 sqn crashlandings at Melsbroek Belgium on december 12 1944 due to icing

    Hello ,

    On december 12 1944 two Mosquitos from N 410 Sqdn made a crashlanding at Melsbroek airfield in Belgium due to icing Mt-458 F/L Plummer BE - F/S Mac Leod A and MM-786 F/O Slipp LC - F/O Cameron BA. Does someone have some additional info on these crew ?

    Regards

    Couple of slight corrections:

    The ORB Form 541 has the date as December 10th 1944, and has F/O L. G. Slipp.

    Possibly Leonard George Slipp, b.1919?

    There doesn't seem to be any record of MT458 serving with 410 Sqn.
    The relevant Air Britain serials book only shows service with 488 Sqn.
