Flt Lt Francis Smith, aged 25, was my mother`s cousin. He was captain of a Sunderland flying boat with 201 Squadron. The aircraft crashed into the sea off Donegal two weeks after Colin disappeared. The bodies of the 12 men on board were never found – full story Chapter 24 and see WW2-Francis off the main website menu.
