Westland Wallace K4340 went into the water at Margam Ranges on this day. I have two fatalities recorded against this a/c, CP Seymour-Smith and LD Stratford.
Margam was certainly within the Neath registration district at the time.
There was another 7BGS accident which involved Henley L3339 which crashed in the Porthcawl area on the same day, JN Thornewill and RH Lemon being killed . However Porthcawl, although being close by, was not in the Neath district.
Does this help?
