    Thanks Malcolm. Wellington LN265 is in my files, however PATRICK not listed by Chorley in his Vol. 8 on page 219 (other crew: Sgt D.C. JOEL - Sgt J. DRIVER - Sgt W.R. WOODING - Sgt C. ELVIDGE - Sgt O. HOLEY). Omitted by Chorley ? Could place of death registration link him to this accident ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello Henk,

    For the record Martinet HN862 crashed in forced landing due to fuel starvation (faulty fuel gauge). Pilot Sgt NICHOL W. (1576794) uninjured.

    Kind regards,

    Tim

    Hello

    Cpl Maurice CAWKWELL - 1072658 - the Hull Daily Mail of July 15th 1943 reported that he committed suicide by gas poisoning. The article reports that the R.A.F. sent him home for his wife to look after. The Coroner commented: "the authorities should not have sent him home for his wife to look after him. He should have been put into a hospital or handed over to a civilian doctor. The R.A.F. authorities must accept responsibility for the loss of this man. The circumstances were most distressing and deserving of censure."

    Sgt (Nav) Henry H. PATRICK - 1556198 - the Graves Registration Report Form lists his unit as 21 O.T.U. The Stirling Observer of July 22nd 1943 reported that he "died as the result of an aircraft accident."

    Regards

    Simon
