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.
