"54 Sqn" Bristol Bulldog incident November 18 1930 Sgt N T Philips (later BoB)Can anyone identify the aircraft involved in the following incident Wednesday 19 November 1930 , Nottingham Evening Post , Nottinghamshire, England While Sergt.-Pilot Norman Taylor Phillips (365324) attached to the Fighting Squadron at Sutton's Aerodrome, Hornchurch" was flying Bristol Bulldog plane at an altitude about 3,000 ft. yesterday over Collier Row, near Romford, his engine seized, and he had a narrow escape. He came down in field in the centre the village of Collier Row, and narrowly escaped striking some old cottages amd crashed into a hedge and overturned, the nose becoming embedded in the ground. Thoe pilot escaped injury, and when other airmen came over in their machines from the aerodrome he went up in one of went up in one of them. -> 54 Sqn RAF? The Squadron was reformed at RAF Hornchurch on 15 January 1930 as a fighter squadron equipped initially with dual-control Siskin Trainers until Bristol Bulldog fighters were received in April that year Phillips was killed during the BoB ( 8th August 1940 Spitfire, K9905) and his entry in MoBoB is a little sparse on his time training - I assume he was attached to 54 Sqn at the time as according to Wiki.. "The Squadron was reformed at RAF Hornchurch on 15 January 1930 as a fighter squadron equipped initially with dual-control Siskin Trainers until Bristol Bulldog fighters were received in April that year" "Phillips later applied for pilot training, was selected and passed out as a Sergeant-Pilot in 1931."
