Hello everybody!
Ishould correct something about this plane:
in the book mentioned, ONLY THE NUMBER of the plane is shown.
The names etc. were provided by a aircraft searcher, but should be trusted...

You must try to give as much accurate information as possible, especially a date, if you want help. For example, acording to RAF Records Morgan died in a field hospital 15 May 40; no aircraft is mentioned. Flt Lt Murdoch was apparently taken POW 27 May 40 but no aircraft details are listed. Both were 59 Sqn (not 59th Sqn!)
