    Thanks Dave I followed the forums database details .
    "Sergeant B P Buchegger, Leading Airman G R Tait (Royal Navy): killed; aircraft accident, Magister L8070, 24 Elementary Flying Training School, 10 December 1940"

    And

    "Pilot Officer W E Holland, Leading Aircraftman N H Owen: killed; mid air collision with Magister L8070, Tiger Moth BB738, 1 Elementary Flying Training School, 10 December 1940".

    Looks like I got my wires crossed. Will now edit my earlier post.
    Thanks for picking it up.
