    Default 38 Squadron Airman 13-4-41

    I am looking for details of the death of Cuthbert Albert Ernest BIRTLES 652646, missing presumed KIA on 13-4-41. Listed on the Alamein Memorial.
    Other casualties from the squadron on that date who are listed on the same memorial are:
    HWS ADAMS 74966
    FGC DOWNES 745174
    AC HOLBURN 84009
    JM LOWE 903080
    S MIARA 818141

    I believe the squadron was on Wellington's.
    What was the serial number and code of the aircraft, mission details and airfield that it was based at.

    Many thanks
    Martyn
