    Default 5 OTU Beaufort - 20-4-42

    Can anyone give me the serial and crew for this aircraft, which crashed 3 miles north of Barnstaple, North Devon? The only crewman I have is my subject, P/O Frederick Gifford Douglas Baker, RCAF J7620.

    I've on file serial N1028. A second casualty may have been F/O (Obs) Harry C. PEARCE - MiD - 60773 who probably was from 502 Sqn and died of injuries 25-4-1942.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Thanks Henk. Beauforts had, I believe, a crew of four. Does anyone else have a record of this crash and the fate of the other two occupants?
