Steve that's the one I mentioned Peter VMed me about, see post #23. Details are on my profile. As it not 40 sqn , as mentioned in war diary, we discounted it. Hello Owen, I misread what you posted, but I don't think the No 40 Squadron reference is right. That aeroplane crashed near Rome... that's where Google tells me Genzano - Velletri is. No 40 and No 104 Squadron were the units making up No 236 Wing of No 205 Group RAF, Italy. A BIG connection and the No 104 Squadron aeroplane crashed near Foggia. I think that the No 104 Squadron aeroplane is most likely to be the connected crash. Best, Steve.
