Re: Carl Winston Cassini (shot down 18 Dec 1944)

HI

The record for this in Snaith Knights

reads

NP934 17/18 dec 44 P/O B M Twilly (pilot) FTR Duisburg.
another plane lost that night was
NR248 17/18 dec 44 MH-A W/O W A Bates FTR Duisburg

Twilley B.M. P/O 18.12.44 NP934
Baron Edgar H. 149632 F/O Co-Pilot 18.12.44 NP934
