    We will have our first born within the next ten days so my presence online will fall off even more than it has but thanks for this.

    I don't want to even imagine what this database your on about it - but make it affordable, I'll want to be able to feed the child and maybe send it to college.

    I calculate from the statistics at the end of the ORB that Rylatt's crew were from 20 Course as the casualties from Course 17 and 18 contained officers. And they new who was missing and found.
    1 OTU seems like a bloody dangerous place to be!! And then you'd get shot at.

    I've emailed a copy of the runtime to your Yahoo account.

    Actually two as the first one I sent I have been tweaking and moved file names but not updated the internal lists.

    Ross very interested to hear of your F1180 database plan!

    If you get your licensing issues sorted what format will it take/ how will it work?


    BTW Denis best wishes to you and your other half in the next few days

    Thanks Ross, interesting email. Great help.

    Found an example of one of the pilots who crashed in Ireland hand written off two Beaufighter in early 1942 in an active squadron and was sent back to OTU per the 1178, only to crash another aircraft in Ireland a few weeks later again.

    And thanks Paul, I'm really really going to need it!

    Hello,

    Just to clear up any confusion on posts # 1 & 3.

    Shark II K5608/755 Sqn FAA - should read Shark II K5608/755 Sqn FAA:

    Blackburn Shark II K5608.

    K5608

    8 MU 9.39.
    To RN charge 25.10.40,
    755 Sqn Worthy Down from 3.41,
    Nosed up then stalled in while in landing circuit Andover-Newbury road fork, 2m SW of airfield. Cat Z. 24.2.1942 (Lt WJ Boal & LA BR Kerry killed).
