    Hi Henk,

    No mix up.

    AM760 was lost 26th June not 26th April.

    Confirmed by date of death of Summers and Tomlinson, both Bergen-op-zoom on 26th June 1942.

    Regards
    Ross

    Ross,
    Dutch list of aircraft losses has for the 1 (C)OTU Hudson lost on diversion flight for Bremen 26-6-1942 serial AM794.
    Could you confirm ? And who were on board Hudson AM760 listed by Air Britain as missing on training flight 26-6-1942 ?
    Air Britain P1000-R9999 (latest edition) has for P5147: 1 OTU: missing on diversion raid for Bremen 26-6-1942 !!!
    Regards,
    Henk.
