|411121 - Unaccounted airwoman and airmen - 21-11-1941||The two casualties registered at Ware are probably associated with Havoc AH432 of 1451 Flt which crashed at Gilston Park which is a mile or so to the SE of Hunsdon.

|411121 - Unaccounted airwoman and airmen - 21-11-1941||I thought that Norrish name was familiar but didn't figure it out till Dave message,
Havoc AH432 is being discussed on 12 O'Clock High at present!
"P/O M C Woodgate pilot, Sgt Norrish navigator and Sgt Smith, of 1451 Flt, 11 Group, Fighter Command were flying a weather test from Hunsdon in a Havoc II Turbinelite, night fighter, serial number AH432.
They took off at 1545 hours, 21-Nov-1944 and lost height while making a circuit of the aerodrome. The aircraft hit high trees at Gilston Park, 9 miles east of Hunsdon, while in a shallow diving attitude. The aircraft crashed into the ground with fire on impact. Both airframe and engines were Cat W.
P/O Woodgate and Sgt Norrish were killed but Sgt Smith escaped with slight injuries." ....Read More.||dennis_burke on 27th January 2009 01:19:12|
