CRASH OF A BRISTOL BEAUFORT
AT SEA IN THE BAIRNSDALE AREA
ON 2 OCTOBER 1942
RAAF Mark V Bristol Beaufort, A9-49 (RAF Serial No. T9601), was lost at sea during a reconnaissance flight in the Bairnsdale area.
The crew were all killed as follows:-
Sgt. P.K. Crombie (Pilot)
Sgt. P. Cribb
Sgt. B.J. Morrow
Sgt. A.J. Carl
This aircraft was originally delivered to the RAAF in May 1942. It was "not taken up".
I'd like to thank Rick Hanning for his assistance with the above information.
Can anyone help me with more information?
