    Hi

    In the database Cadet Neil McALLISTER is shown as being killed in Anson AX134 but this aircraft had been shipped to the RCAF in Canada in 1941, so what aircraft was McAllister in?

    Malcolm,
    It was AX143, as noted in the earlier thread:

    I've amended the database - thanks for pointing it out:

    Jagan will need to amend his rank as per AIR81/16569.
