    Default P/O Anthony Higgins, RCAF J13418 - 16-12-1942

    Can someone give me the crash details for this loss somewhere in the Lake District? I have all the CWGC info but no a/c or OTU/HCU info.

    Thanks.

    Default Three navigators on one aircraft?

    I have just checked on the details of the crew of this Wellington and it seems there were three navigators on board: my subject, Higgins, Goodwin and Dubben, who is listed as an Observer. Would this be common for a training flight?
