Can anyone provide me with the AB history of Wellington IC DV638 ? I believe that this aircraft was involved in an incident on 29/7/1942, in the Middle East, whilst with 148 Sqn.

The crew were as follows(in Alpha. order):-

Aus408068 Sgt Malcolm BETHUNE RAAF - Shock & slight bruises.
641825 Sgt William Charles BULL (+10/5/44 50 Sqn. - BCL5/218)
1162639 Sgt David Morgan LEWIS +
1108339 Sgt D M MARTIN
1376668 Sgt Sidney Alfred PAYNE (+5/5/43 21 OTU - BCLOTU/217)
1059802 Sgt C WILD

There is no mention of this incident in BLME1(The a/c. may have been damaged, not W/O), hence the query.

Bethune's (undigitised) A705 is listed at the NAA under an incorrect service number ie 40808. His A9300 (NAA: A9300 BETHUNE M), is digitised.

Confirmation welcomed.

Col.
