    Crew of EL400 recorded in the ORB as 1096374 Sgt Spence (Pilot) and 1144696 Sgt Webb (Navigator), both survived. The ORB recorded the aircraft on the 10th June as EL300.

    The 1180 for AZ733 (a dual card recording both aircraft) records 2 killed for AZ733, and names Warrant Officer Burril R78790 (as killed) and Flight Sergeant W. Lynn 1346445 (survived), pilot of DL218. Richard Victor Jupp, age 24, is recorded in the Tarvin Rural District in Cheshire West which covers the area the crash occurred in.
