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. 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: 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.
