    Hi Henk

    Bayley and Bee - Aylesbury (RAF Hospital Halton?) possibly linked?
    Camm - Shrewsbury, Shropshire possibly in Spitfire IIB, P8530
    Fenton - Cirencester, Gloucestershire possibly Spitfire IIA, P7834
    Moore - 53 OTU

    "Gifts of War" confirms Camm on P8530 and Fenton on P7834. It also gives P8508 for Moore (53 OTU): "Crashed into the sea 5 miles SE of Porthcawl, Glam."

    Hi Henk,

    Both the crew and the bomb load of T4661 were removed by the crash crew before injury (P/O E H Jeffreys, P/O Irving).

    Regards

    as John has pointed out, Sgt Dougie Camm was on board P8530 which came down at Bomere Heath (note spelling though).

    Cheers, Tom
