On return to base the pilot requested a BABS (Blind Approach Beacon System) approach but advised that he had poor RT and BABS reception. No further calls were received and when the wreckage was found the position of the undercarriage and flaps suggested that the aircraft was being set up for an overshoot when the pilot lost control and may have stalled. Flight Lieutenant Fernihough received his DFC for his bravery whilst flying 65 sorties with 37 Sqn in the Middle East during 1943. Flight Sergeant Wright's DFC was awarded in December 1944 when he was a Warrant Officer with 75 Sqn.
