Thanks to Ken Morrison who has pointed out to me that James Arthur Keighley and Alexander Muir Park were on the same aeroplane when it crashed. According to the RAF Commands database they were part of the crew of Lancaster I W4901 that took off at 2230 on 16 June 1943 from Elsham Wolds aerodrome. They were shot down by enemy flak.
