    I have the pilot as Sheppard RW who abandoned the a/c and survived, and possibly 572898 James SD who was killed. Requires confirmation.

    regards

    This old thread suggested

    LAC W S D James 572898 as the other man aboard. His death is registered in district that seems to include the village.

    Always worth searching for names/serials using the search function and adding to old threads.
