    Yes, those the photos can helped and proof to push MoD to accept that the wreckage which have the large R letter on the fuselage was the only B-24 that lost at Malaya during that time..

    Fortunately that 3 crews were survived. They were transfered to other unit when the plane arrived at India shortly before going to Cocos Island. We do hope that they can reunited back with their friend during the funeral.
