    Same date and casualty communique

    Sgt. E Highfield W.Op./Air Gnr.
    Sgt. J Clarke W.Op./Air Gnr. (Buried Limavady, Northern Ireland)

    Also buried Northern ireland that day is

    RAAF Sgt C B Berger

    His casualty file lists:
    BERGER Colin Bruce - (Sergeant); Service Number - 408619; File type - Casualty - Repatriation; Aircraft - Wellington HX 430; Place - Limavady, Northern Ireland; Date - 31 January 1943

    And the notes to his casualty file list:

    BERGER Colin Bruce - (Sergeant); Service Number - 408619

    SAMUELS – (Sergeant); Service Number – CAN R117592
    MILSON – (Pilot Officer); Service Number – RAF 130249
    HIGHFIELD – (Sergeant); Service Number – RAF 1029036
    CLARK – (Sergeant); Service Number – RAF 1031745
    GREENWOOD – (Sergeant); Service Number – RAF 1030029

    Casualty file is not yet scanned however.

    Figured out using Flight archives and Geoff's Sullivans CWGC serach engine.

    Greenwood is listed died the Next day and in Flight archives is died of Wounds or injuries recieved on Active Service.

    The others are all Killed on Active Service.

    Bergers Service file is available scanned however.

    It was a 7 (C) OTU aircraft.
