Hawker Hind crash K6758 (04/03/1940)YOu won;t get anything offcial online at the moment but we did discuss this loss years back on the forum. http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/DCForumID6/Data/16991.txt Since the IT wizardry behind the old forum has fallen over I've extracted the relevent parts below. You can order a copy of the Air Ministry Form 1180 from teh RAF museum in hendon via their Doris reaserch office. Email them from here: http://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/research/ Old mesage forum thread:------------ 'Unaccounted' airmen 4-3-1940 Henk Welting (Guest 09/24/2007|F/O (Pilot) Russell BELL - 70791, of 5 FTS (Sealand, Flintshire), lies buried Wavertree (Holy Trinity) Churchyard, Liverpool (UK880). I've a note that he died at Hoylake, pres. whilst ferrying an aircraft. Hind I - K6758 - 12 MU - dived into ground Hoylake Beach, Cheshire. It could be possible that also Sgt Frederick L. LEE - 742543, buried at Mitcham (London Road) Cem., Surrey (UK4269), was killed in this accident. If F/O Bell was the only occupant of Hind K6758, it could be possible that Sgt Lee's aircraft was either: Audax K8334 of 3 FTS (crashlanded South Cerney), or: Wallace II - K3672 - 3 BGS - flew into ground Langford Lodge. Regards and thanks for your help. Henk. RE: 'Unaccounted' airmen 4-3-1940|DaveW09/24/2007 Henk Lee's death does not appear in the registers of either England & Wales or Scotland. Maybe the Irish connection?? Regards DaveW RE: 'Unaccounted' airmen 4-3-1940|Henk Welting (Guest)||07:56:53|09/25/2007| Thanks Dave. I checked several websites on losses in Eire and Northern Ireland without success. But everything is possible, I even found two burials in the U.K. of airmen repatriated after the war from Canada.
