    Hi Henk
    Happy New Year. I'm afraid that both your Blenheims are in Warner's "Blenheim" but on 19/06/40 and there were no recorded deaths
    Regards
    Dick

    Default Unaccounted airman 19-5-1940 (must be 19-6-1940)

    Thanks Dick. Your info is correct. Mistake from my side. The said airman indeed was killed (or died) 19-6-1940.
    Regards,
    Henk.
