|UK Collisions Late 1939 Early 1940||Hi Paul,
25.4.40 Hurricane I ???? 605 Sqn 6m W of Thurso, this was N2358 which landed ok. L2013 crashed at Forss Wood. Collided during formation break and L2013 spun in.
29.5.40 Master I N7559 8 FTS Collided with N7604. I have Palmer and Parker both on N7559 and Bibby and Wood on N7604, Both aircraft came down at North Mains of Luther, Angus.
01.10.39 Spitfire I L1059 After the ground collision at Grangemouth it was repaired, hitting a building on approach to Wittering with 266 Sqn Well known Bob Pilot's name escapes me, at work at the moment, 9/8/40, repaired and transferred to 58 OTU 29/01/41 crashing at Hillhead Farm Slamannan 14/02/41r killing Sgt. John Sylvester. Memorial at Slammanan Village is made with the recovered prop blades.

|UK Collisions Late 1939 Early 1940||Paul,
20-3-40. F/Lt. Boulter and two on board the Oxford were injured. The Oxford presumably from No. 8 SFTS which was based at Montrose. Could not find a Form 1180 for either aircraft.
Source: 'THE GREATEST SQUADRON OF THEM ALL', Vol. 1 (p.119-122) by David Ross/Bruce Blanche/William Simpson.
25-4-40. Pilot of L2013 was Sgt. Robert Marwick Mainland who baled out too low and was killed. No F.1180 for either Hurricane. I have [B]N2352[/B] as the serial of Currant's aircraft based on the entries in the 605 Squadron F.541. For his aircraft on this flight the serial is somewhat smudged and could be read as N2358 but this Hurricane never flew with 605 Sqn., only 43 and 73 Squadrons. I believe N2358 was lost or abandoned in France during May/June 1940. Its F.78 has no subsequent history but it did not go to Finland as sometimes recorded (Air-Britain's 'RAF AIRCRAFT L1000-N9999'). This publication under the entry for L2013 records it collided with N2358, again in error I believe. In the 605 Sqn. F.541 Currant was regularly flying N2352 in the days leading up to this accident and I could not find N2358 anywhere in this ORB.
PS. Access to that 50 MU diary would be a wonderful help to many researchers. ....Read More.||Martin Gleeson on 2nd March 2017 10:15:05|

Sergeant ( Pilot ) Percy Frederick Harold Thurgar #580293
he was Killed with 87 Sqn in France on 12 February 1940 he was flying Hurricane L1613 and crashed due to bad weather conditions near Plechatel, Ile-et-Vilaine.
Apparently he was trying to force land in bad weather (snow and fog) and hit a tree at around 4 pm
So I was completely off base with that one ....Read More.||paulmcmillan on 30th July 2018 03:25:59|
