    According to the 151 Sqn ORB, Sgt Stanley crashed at 2040 on the evening of 26 Oct 40. The Summary of Events just records him as being killed in a flying accident while night flying.
    If the CWGC date is correct then he must have died from his injuries.

    The serial number of this aircraft would seem to be in doubt.
    According to AIR81/3959: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16688057
    Dewey was flying P7495, which is at variance with P7365 given in the ORB.
    P7495 was SOC on 19 Nov 40 according to: http://www.airhistory.org.uk/spitfire/_prodn%20list.txt (the Air-Britain serials book records the date as 29.11.40, with no known fate)
    P7365 on the other hand seems to have survived to be SOC on 6 Oct 43.
    That said, AIR81/3928: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16688026
    records that P/O Soden was injured after bailing out of P7365 on 25 Oct 40.
    A confusing situation....
