    Hi Martyn,

    Just in case you don't have the ref.

    12/13-12-1941
    OADU
    Wellington IC Z1163
    Delivery Flight

    Crashed in the sea on night take-off, Gibraltar, and exploded, the cause was obscure, but possibly flaps-up was selected instead of undercarriage. The crew is buried in Gibraltar North Front Cemetery.
