    Malcolm,
    Don't think that DUTHIE may have been on the Defiant; he is listed as having "DIED" on active service. Killed in a flying accident was listed as "KOAS" (Killed on active service).
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Alec Brew recorded Flt Sgt R. Muirhead (RCAF) and Sgt Wilde (Army) as the crew for AA632 in the Defiant File. Both were injured.

    Opuchuk was recorded as the only casualty from W8995, his name was recorded as Opuehlik in the ORB.
