    Hi Simon
    Further to my earlier post
    Scanlon,attacking Benghazi Harbour,Wellington Ic,AD642(from RAF Bomber Losses in M E and Med by Gunby and Temple)
    I see others have beaten me to it with most of the rest!
    Some of the remainder are Coastal Command Sqns and the appropriate book covering beyond 1941 has not yet been published
    ,Edit Wood's death is registered at Sturminster,Dorset and his squadron was based at Westhampnett in Sussex.He does not appear in Norman Frank's Fighter Command Losses so it was probably not an operational loss. May have been training or transit
    Regards
    Dick

    Thanks for that one Alex. A quick Google for P7010 brought up this from TOCH:

    13 claims [were made] by Luftwaffe fighter pilots for Whirlwinds, the last one being on 14 Apr 1943 Lt Wilhelm Godt 8/JG2. This appears to correspond to the loss of Sgt J. Macauley 263 Sqn (KIA) flying Whirlwind I (P7010).

    Regards

    Simon
