Theddlethorpe Ranges/ Louth Register OfficeGents: If our register office experts can confirm that Louth would be an appropriate office for registering fatalities which occurred in an aircraft accident on the ranges at Theddlethorpe, then I believe we have the answer to a question which was put on the old board in August 2007 and never satisfactorily resolved. The question was the reason for the death of AC2 HS Melvin, 804282 and AC2 J Warry, 804336, on 13-10-1939. Both were members of 604 Squadron. There are only nine casualties listed on the CWGC site for 13-10-1939; of these I have six accounted for ( Hiller and Moller Blenheim L1138; Lumsden, Marwood and Thomson Blenheim N6160; Montgomery DOAS). This leaves Sgt Pilot Levitt, AC2 Melvin and AC2 Warry. The deaths of these three are registered at Louth. From the “K file”, for Battle K7593 we have: “Engine cut during air firing exercise, stalled and hit ground, three killed”. The aircraft was on the charge of 1 AAS. Presumably either the two members, or the complete squadron, were on temporary detachment to 1 AAS. HTH David Molyneux ....Read More.dave bristol on 21st January 2009 09:22:43
