Re: Loss of Botha W5105 of 6 Ferry Pilots Pool on the 10th December 1941.

'Dark Peak Aircraft Wrecks 1' by Ron Collier & R Wilkinson lists the loss of Botta W5103 of No. 7 Ferry pilot pool ATA on 10 December 1941.
The pilot when it was lost was First Officer Thomas William Rodgers.
He was 19 years old, a keen sportsman and point to point rider from Llangadock, Carmarthenshire, Wales.
Regards
Andy
