    Default Wellington Z8335 OADU lost 22/9/1941

    Wellington Z8335 OADU lost on delivery flight 22/9/1941 Luqa - Eqypt. Crew lost at sea all commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial

    Sgt R.B HEWITT
    Sgt J.C EDWARDS-CROSS

    According to the RAF Overseas War Deaths register 1939-1948 their unit is listed as Harwell.

    1180178 Sgt Jeffery Richard MORRIS RAFVR Died 22/9/1941 commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. The RAF Overseas register lists his unit as Harwell. I'm wondering if he was also part of the crew of Z8335 ?

    Any thoughts

    TIA

    Default Jeffrey Richard MORRIS 1180178

    I have the following information as to his possible fate but have not had it confirmed. A previous thread asked the question as to whether or not he was on board but I cannot find any reply. Can you help?

    You have duplicated that thread. Could just ask for update on it.

    Just browsed both RCAF mens service files on ancestry.com and no crew lists found so not conclusive or helpful.!!
