No.24 Sqn. Hudson IIIA FH460 - 4-8-1944Hello, Whilst I have quite a bit on this incident, I would appreciate any further details that are available. 4-8-1944 No.24 Sqn. Hudson IIIA FH460 Flew into high ground at Coombe Hill, nr. Wendover, Bucks, in bad visibility. Crew (Alpha order): 42308 F/L (Pilot) Robert William HARDCASTLE RAF + 362686 F/Sgt ( - ? - ) Leonard James REASON* RAF + 45256 F/L (Pilot) George Frederick ROBERTS* RAFVR + 136043 F/O (Pilot) Edward John SMITH RAFVR + AUS406605 F/O (Nav.) Arthur Milford TINDALE RAAF + 541901 LAC ( - ? - ) Ronald Joseph WALTER RAF + * Reason and Roberts, were "Old Haltonians". This incident is not covered by Alan Storr.

My father was on No: 13 Entry at Halton and his number began 56.... Of interest to 'Halton Watchers' is the title of: King Brat. The honour goes to the oldest surviving ex-Halton apprentice. The current incumbent - who is well over 100 - was on the entry before my old man and hence was a comtemporary of Roberts. The other Colin ....Read More.Oldduffer on 28th October 2011 01:27:46
