    Gordon R. LAMB - 149842. Age 20 Pwllheli district, Wales
    LAC Stanley B. TEBBY - Age 31 Pwllheli district, Wales. he is listed with the above in the same Flight magazine block of names.

    B - Not found Flight archives:
    Cpl Charles A. CHENERY - Not in Q4 index, or 1942 Q2 or in Scotland? Might be a name spellign problem in the index maybe.
    He is listed Died on Active Service, Flight, March 19th 1942. "Cpl. C. A. Cbeuery" is the scanned text!

    LAC Charles F HUDSON - age 44 - York District, Yorkshire East Riding

    Cpl James E. JONES - There is a 26 year old in Wenlock District, Shropshire there are two men over 60 so they can I think be rulled out.

    Thanks Dave. I believe also Warner may have had problems to find the crew of Z6418. Sofar we found:
    P/O (Observer) Gordon R. LAMB - 149842;
    LAC (Observer u/t) Wilfred H.M. DAVIS - 1065864, and
    LAC (WOp ??) Stanley B. TEFFY - 656910.
    But who was at the controls and may have been seriously injured ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Henk, Blenheim L9417 hit a cement mixer on landing at Catfoss, Ive no pilots details for this one but it looks like he survived.

    Has Eddie any further info?
