    Hi All
    The Casualty File of one of Ault's crew Sgt G K Eckersley RAAF has been digitised and confirms the loss off Ceylon in V5992 of 11 Sqn. Air Britain v-serials has V5592 as coming down in the desert after attacking Maleme, as normal it gives no names.
    Air Britain T-Serials gives T2350 of 45 Sqn as Missing from fighter escort patrol near Sidi Barrani on 2/12/41
    Regards
    Dick
