    Henk,

    Cpl's C. Garwood and A.B. Goldie both DOAS in Times lists. F/Sgt. E. Leach not found.

    Cheers from a sunny and cold Ottawa, where I have just put out 9 (nine) huge bags of maple leaves for composter pickup.

    I only have the entry from the 54 OTU ORB for this date.

    July 30th 1941, “At 00.50 hours am Oxford aircraft No.T1064, was shot down by an enemy aircraft while carrying out a training exercise. The Oxford was at 3000 feet with navigation lights on. No enemy aircraft were plotted or believed to be in the neighbourhood, but machine gun fire was heard before the crash and gun fire was seen to strike the Oxford. Examination of the crash subsequently confirmed that the Oxford was shot down. The pilot No.1057420 Sgt C.C. Woodward was unfortunately killed. The aircraft exploded and was completely destroyed.”
