Douglas Boston Mk.III Z2186 of No.418 Squadron RCAF, flew into Carnedd Dafydd in the Carneddau on Saturday 17th October 1942 whilst on a cross country navigation training flight from Bradwell Bay in Essex
|Mervyn Sims||Sergeant RCAF||Pilot||Injured|
|Harold Francis Longworth||Flight Lieutenant RCAF||Air Observer||Killed|
|Ronald Walker||Sergeant RAFVR||Navigator / Bomb Aimer||Killed|
The interesting fact that I noticed with the crew was that two of them were navigators, since Air Observer was the term used used for the combined role of navigator & bomb aimer in the early war years.
