So 2 on AX786 ?
Thanks Paul for confirmation that two casualties were on TM AX786.
Do you know who the second casualty on the TM was ?
Unfortunately not Paul, had a little hope that Ross would react as this TM was from 3 PRU.

I have only just rejoined the Forum. I'm sorry to hear of Henk's death.
I have additional information regarding Marcus Kramer DFC (77345).
Henk mentioned that Marcus was at one time of 242 Squadron at Stapleford Tawney. However, looking at his record (he was my wife's Great Uncle)I only have him shown as 600, 23 and 256 Squadrons, before becoming Group Gunnery Officer for 10 Group on the 3rd February 1941.
I would be interested if anyone has any other information to back up the link to 242 Squadron.
