No.138 Sqdn Polish Loss 7/8th Nov 1941 ?

Hoping someone can confirm the date of loss on the following.

H.P Halifax L9612 FTR from a SOE operation to Poland. I checked the No.138 Squadron ORB and found that no operational losses were recorded for the above date, or was there any record of operations flown from Linton.

I refered to the No.3 Group HQ Records Book and found the following,

H.P.Halifax L9612 Linton

F/O Jasinski (No.300 Sqdn)
Sgt Sobkowiak (No.300 Sqdn )
F/O Krol (No.301 Sqdn)
W/Cdr Roman Rudkoski (No.301 Sqdn)
Sgt Chodvrs (No.301 Sqdn)
Sgt Moll (No.301 Sqdn)
Sgt Wasilewski (No.301 Sqdn)
Sgt Soltysiak (No.301 Sqdn)

At 0100hrs this aircraft sent "Operation Completed am returning with undercarriage down". At 0350hrs "Landed Sweden".

However , The Halifax File records L9612 as FTR November 1st 1941, this is also the date recorded in Agents By Moonlight. ?

There is no Loss Card and the Escape & Evasion report records the date of loss as 7/8th Nov 1941, again however Chorley in BCL Vol 2 records the date as Nov 1st 1941.

Can anyone please confirm.
