Pranged Stirling RAF Tangmere

Gents,

Long shot here.

Looking for a photo of a pranged Short Stirling Mk.I of No.218 (Gold Coast) Squadron flown by the squadron C/O W/Cdr O A Morris. Crashed on return from a Nickle op to Toulon November 8th 1942.

Aircraft ( W7612 HA:T) hit trees on approach due to two defective engines, the aircraft was totally destroyed, thankfully without the crew badly hurt.

Any photo's or details via Tangmere Station records most welcome.

TIA

Steve
No.218 (Gold Coast) Squadron 1918-1945
