    Hi

    Mainley - He was serving with No 416 (Army Co-operation) Flight, probably on detachment to Exeter, when he died on active service, his death being registered in Honiton

    K9906 was converted to PR.I and served with various squadrons before being SOC in 1943.
    Hackney was flying N3272 I think, and BoF agrees.
    TNA say N3271: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ls/r/C14502050
    but this was lost with 616 Sqn in August 1940
