You'll find a lot like this, George.

Chorley's Bomber Command Losses (all volumes) have aircraft like this. A/c written off but crew not injured so not listed.

Hopefully, Temujin will prove me wrong but if Rich Allenby doesn't have it...and he doesn't http://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk/air ... he367.html

A couple of times I have found crews because one or two were injured, an enquiry held and these documents placed in the man's file. He then gets killed later and we find the accident and crew.

Did some quick looking before we hit the road this morning.

Found the crash, little info.......but found when he flew next with crew. It’s possible that this was his same crew??? As Ludford said, maybe research these other crew members to see if any details come up........I”ll seach more later tonight
