    Right got to LB240

    F1180 gives 4 fatalities (looks like one died later)

    Pilot F/O P Grove, 120779 (according to CWGC he died the following day)
    P/O K Wade, 132725, +

    So two others to be added and these look like Newman and Lane.

    Regards
    Ross

    Hello

    Sgt (Pilot) Ivan JUDD - 1231051 - their respective Graves Registration Report Forms confirm their unit as 7 E.F.T.S., which links them to Tiger Moth II N9214.

    LACW Emily HAYBURN - 2087023 - the Liverpool Echo of April 14th 1943 carried the following announcement:
