    I've amended the first post to show the ones done, and I've deleted those I found myself elsewhere.

    Thanks to all who have helped.

    Regards

    Thanks Ross. At the risk of asking what may be a daft question, what's a Standex Patrol?

    Regards

    To stimulate a little discussion, here is a possibilty for P/O Bewick:

    19-7-1943
    No.295 Sqn
    Halifax V DK131 'VV'

    Missing on ferry flight, Gibraltar-UK.

    Crew (Alpha order):

    1320257 Sgt Edward Alfred ANCELL RAFVR + (Runnymede Mem.)
    124853 F/O John Winship BEWICK RAFVR + (Malta Mem.)
    R/143634 F/Sgt Robert Henry COWLEY RCAF + (Runnymede Mem.)
    1507319 Sgt William Herbert SHAW RAFVR + (Runnymede Mem.)
    1289980 Sgt Russell Edward TOMLIN RAFVR + (Runnymede Mem.)
    1479623 F/Sgt Joseph TRAVIS RAFVR + (Runnymede Mem.)

    All the above needs confirmation.

    Col.

    Yes Col, I picked up on that in the 'The Halifax File' as a possibility. It didn't list the crew members, or the VV codes however.

    Hi Col

    Re LP210 - 2204240 Sgt (Air Gnr.) Stanley CHUBB, CWGC lists him as Stanley CLUB

    Cummings lists Bewick in DK131
