    Dave and Pavel, thanks for your quick replies.

    This sounds one to erase from my Yorkshire list if indeed it did crash over in what is now Cumbria but there are many "rogue" incidents in Michael Hursts book and it may well turn out to be one which went down in Yorkshire.

    Thanks for clearing it up, regards Rich

    59 OTU was based at Crosby on Eden with a satellite at Longtown, so I think it probable that the Micklethwaite (near Wigton) in Cumberland is the correct place. To confirm It would be useful if the pilot's death registration district could be determined, but as he De Sapgay is described as FFAF it is possible that he would not be registered in the British system.

    Does anyone have the 59 OTU ORB please?

    regards

    Thanks all, I agree the Carlisle location looks almost certainly the correct place and one to delete from my "unknowns" list for Yorkshire incidents, there are a couple of places in Yorkshire with the same name.

    Thanks for your input, regards Rich
