Crash of 18 Squadron Blenheim 21 March 1940I am afraid that Bill Chorley's crash location is incorrect for Blenheim L1427, I have three pages of the Report conducted by P/O D. S. Dickins and F/Lt C. Thompson who were instructed by the Station Commander and with a letter from the Officer Commanding No. 18 Squadron to fly down to Tangmere and investigate the crash of Blenheim L.1427 at Jeffery's Point, Portslade, near Brighton. The witnesses were Mr Gerald Winter, Castle Hill, Rotherfield, Sussex, two witnesses from Brighton and one from Peacehaven. "Winter immediately ran to the scene" ... "Winter shewed tremendous bravery by trying to extricate the pilot and Observer," ... Another paragraph in the Report of "a spectator, whose name and address is not known, said he saw an R.A.F. aircraft flying over Brighton at the time, and no recognition signal was seen to be fired." Empire Gallantry Medal Spelt "Jeffries Point" Portslade, Sussex, in Flight Magazine, with Mr Gerald Winter's address being given as "Ivydean, Roderick Avenue, Peacehaven, Sussex." different to the address in the earlier 1940 accident report.
