    Alex,
    The 7 AGS machine lost on 22 Jun 41 was a Fairey Battle, as per AIR81/7077: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16756374
    The correct serial of this Battle was L5001.
    I have amended our database to place the correct crew members with each aircraft.
    Jagan will need to remove the erroneous link to AIR81/4140.
    Andy

    According to the Air-Britain serials book N5855 was lost in Greece in June 1941, but I think this might well be an error.
    As a matter of interest, whilst cross-checking I came across:
    http://www.southafricawargraves.org/...s.php?id=27020
    which wrongly states that he died of wounds suffered on 6 Jun 40. I have filed a correction.

    Wasn't his name Otto PAUL?
    Either way he was in the crew of He111H-2 6811/6N+BH of 1./KGr100 which ditched off Bridport.
