    They are all RAFVR , I can't find a plane loss but all 4 are same unit and MIA so can only think it was an aircraft loss. There was a Baltimore lost in the area and the pilot killed and body recovered ( GODDARD, Harry - F/L (Pilot) - 47525 - RAF - Tel El Kebir War Memorial cemetery, Egypt.) but think the OTU only had Wellingtons
