Plea for aircraft crash information

I WOULD like to appeal to readers to help me to find out more details about an aircraft crash in Eastbourne during the Second World War.

I believe a C47 Dakota collided with another aircraft, a Defiant, in foggy conditions, and crashed close to a radar station on or near Beachy Head in 1943/1944.

If anyone has any information on this incident, I would be pleased if they could get in touch with me.

My email address is and telephone number is 01483 765217.
