F/O M Bocquet, RAF[QUOTE=andy wis;33506] The S/N's I have of the early Hurricanes don't give all the losses; could it be old data?? [/QUOTE] If you could post the losses then prehaps the people here could fill in the blanks! There was an old posting on TOCH in 2007 which listed the following Hurricane Losses in 1938 - which I have updated with latest info 1-2-38 - 111 Sqn - L1556 - Dived into ground 1 mile W of Northolt. Pilot hit head on Hood. Pilot: F/O Mervyn Seymour Bocquet Killed. 10-5-38 - 3 Sqn - L1579 - Stalled on approach and dived into ground Kenley. Pilot: P/O Hugh Henry-May Killed 19-5-38 - 111 Sqn - L1551 - Bellylanded at Ickenham, M'sex. To 2307M. 14-7-38 - 111 Sqn - L1550 - Bellylanded Colnbrook, Bucks. 20-7-38 - 111 Sqn - L1549 - Crashed at Hillingdon, Middlesex whilst on approach to Northolt. No. 563163 Sgt. Maurice Reginald Kenedy Smith Killed 6-9-38 - N/A - L1652 - Crashed on test before delivery after take-off from Weybridge, Surrey.

But is this really L1620 or maybe L1626 (see below)? as L1620 was lost 19-5-40 with P/O H. Dunn shot down near Orchies, pilot wounded, he baled out. 29-9-38 - 56 Sqn - L1603 - Undershot landing at night & DBR at North Weald, Essex - To 1181M. 6-10-38 - 111 Sqn - L1553 - Bellylanded in error & DBR at Northolt, Middlesex, to 1430M. 6-10-38 - 85 Sqn - L1648 - Overshot into hedge & DBR landing at Debden, Essex 27-10-38 - 85 Sqn - L1651 - Engine failed overshot & DBR while Landing at Aldergrove, County Antrim - To 1215M. 11-38 - L1710 Sqn - To SAAF became "272" Cr nr Beaufort West 6.9.39 on t/o 2 Lt. R.F.Armstrong safe. 11-38 - L1711 Sqn - To SAAF became "273" Cr 5-3-41with 2 Lt. D.L.

However, maybe L1625 ? Old post on RAFCommands "L1625 was SOC on 27.3.39 and allotted as 1370M on the following day 'ex 87 Squadron'. 1370M was sent to No.1 SoTT, Halton, and Reduced to Produce there on 17.12.43. Neither the Form 78 for this aircraft nor the 'Delivery Record' which often records the reason for aircraft write-off refer to any incident. The back of the Form 78 has the reference 757209/38 E.1 in the 'casualty' box but this gives no details of what the reference says." 24-11-38 - 1 Sqn - L1677 - Skidded on wet grass, overshot & tipped up landing at Tangmere, Sussex To 1226M. 12-12-38 - 85 Sqn - L1604 - Undershot & hit ditch after engine failed on Approach Debden, Essex - To 1468M. 20-12-38 - 85 Sqn - L1634 - Engine failed, forcelanded hit ditch & overturned near Debden, Essex - To 1358M. ....Read More.paulmcmillan on 12th August 2009 09:00:19
AiB AVIA Class ReportsThe TNA index for AVIA 5 has a number of errors in the transcription of serial numbers that prevent easy searches.
