    Hi Henk
    Warner records no deaths on K7044,
    Hazel Burton,20, registered at Carmarthen, N Wales
    Wilding,20, registered at Fylde, Lancashire
    Winter, 28, registered at Thanet, Kent
    Horwood,22, Oliver,19, Sanders,23, Williams,28, and Wray,19, are all registered at Eton, Buckinghamshire, the right area for Horton and Dominie R5927,
    Metcalfe,21, registered at Brentford, Middlesex, SW London
    The nearest I could find for Porter was a registration, age 24, at Grantham, Lincolnshire and another aged 19 at Willesden, Middlesex. Neither fits in with the information that Roy has given that places him in the collision in Durham
    I missed the Durham W registration supplied by Malcolm
    Regards
    Dick

    Hi Henk & Others,

    From; Bloody Shambles Vol.2.

    Saturday-Monday, 14-16 February (1942)

    Saturday, 14 February.

    Similar fates had overtaken the crews of two of the 62 Squadron machines. The A6Ms apparently shot down the Hudsons flown by Plt Offs Richard Johnson and John Robinson (AE592) as they approached the target; both crews perished.

    See:
    Bloody Shambles Vol.2
    Shores,C.,Cull,B. & Y.Izawa
    London:Grub Street,1993.
    p.91.

    No.62 Sqn. Casualties 14-2-42 (per G'sSE).

    759017 F/Sgt Ronald Frederick BARKER
    968251 F/Sgt Gordon Charles Wager GUTERSOHN
    966005 Sgt Colin William HARVEY
    100543 F/O Richard Arthur Chaffen JOHNSON
    955799 F/Sgt Geoffrey POOLE
    751555 F/Sgt James ROBERTSON
    89831 F/O John Stewart ROBINSON
    745908 F/Sgt William TEMPLETON

    All commemorated on the Singapore Memorial.

    Difficult, other than pilots', to assign men to aircraft.

    Col.
