    The only Whitley that didnt return that night was P4150/G. The ORB shows it force landing at Harpham and written off

    Can you check that serial please - it doesn't exist.

    Hello,

    The 58 Sqn Whitley that force-landed at Harpham, on 15 October 1940, was T4150, returning from Stettin.

    See: BCL1(rev.ed.)/p.222.

    and ...

    T4150 is correct but the ORB for that date shows it as P4150. I agree that serial doesnt exist, whoever typed out that original report way back in 1943 must have got it wrong
