    Thanks Dennis. No idea whether any of them may have a match with the proposed a/c losses.

    Witney could be associated with Akeman Street and Holderness with Brough.

    BTW TM serial should read T8202.

    I was concerned that posting this next batch of answers from the F1180s would have put Henk under too much pressure to update after his request to remove his user name.

    I now post them to contine his legacy on RAF Commands.

    Oxford T1384 F1180 confirms one fatility LAC L J Chambers.

    Rest in peace
