Hello
I'm trying to find any information available on the loss of a Liberator GR Mk V of 59 Sqn RAF Coastal Command on Feb 24 1944. The aircraft left Ballykelly on an Anti - submarine patrol and failed to return. On board was my uncle, F/O N R (Ray) Gamble (WOp/AG). As far as I can ascertain, the other 7 crew members were
F/Lt Alan Morgan Rhodes (pilot)
F/O James Gerald Moxham (co-pilot)
F/Lt Frank Noel Jenkin
F/O Idris Edward Bolton
Sgt Robert Forsyth Smith
Sgt Andrew Christopher Neville (RCAF)
Sgt Douglas Gibbs Strachan (RCAF)
The aircraft serial no was FL980, identifying letter T.

Until earlier that month, Ray flew with the crew headed by S/Ldr B A Sisson and P/O R A Williams. I believe that the other crew members were W/O W Whittaker, F/O E L G Cock, P/O H Humphries, F/Sgt W McLoughlin and Sgt G L P Kammellard.

Any information gratefully received
