    Default 404 (CF) Squadron Loss

    G'day Chaps

    No. 404 'Buffalo' (CF) Squadron lost a Beaufighter on the night of the 7th of December, 1942.
    I have crew details and I know it crashed after takeoff. What I need is the serial number of the aircraft, the circumstances of the loss and where it went down.

    Cheers...Chris
