400824 - Unaccounted airmen - 24-8-1940We have a mystery here! From 'Air Crashes in the Lake District' (apparently not the most reliable source) which has the following entries 24/8/40 Botha Mk I L6160 1c OTU Silloth Crew D Alexander 9093 D Lowry 94493 K Thompson 742868 The crew of this a/c perished when it crashed and burnt out while taking part in a night flying exercise. The crash site was near Balladoyle Farm, which subsequently became noted for a/c crashes. 28/8/40 Botha Mk 2 L6203 1c OTU Silloth Crew - A/c crashed at Balladoyle Farm killing its crew of three. No further info. is available on this accident. In the first case, the only casualty listed that can be attributed to the accident on the 24th is Thompson, registered at Wigton. Of the other two, Alexander & Lowry, I can find no trace. However Henk's Sadler was killed on the 24th and whos death is also registered at Wigton! I think we have two of the three crewmen. There is also the matter of two Bothas crashing at the same place in the space of a few days. ABS records that it was L6203 that crashed at Balladoyle Farm on the 24th and L6160 at Horsforth, Yorks on the 25th May 1940. So what was the serial of the other Botha at Balladoyle, if indeed there was one? Any comments anyone? regards DaveW ....Read More.davew on 8th March 2008 10:52:38
400824 - Unaccounted airmen - 24-8-1940Dave, Botha L6160 lost 25-5-1940. 1st Offr ATA John T.W. CLARK crashed Horsforth, Leeds (death registered Wharfedale). D. Alexander 9093 not in my files. The three on L6203 may have been Thompson, Sadler and Lowry. No Botha loss on 28-8-1940. Was Lowry's death also registered at Wigton ?

AiB AVIA Class ReportsThe TNA index for AVIA 5 has a number of errors in the transcription of serial numbers that prevent easy searches. The following is very much a work in progress for AVIA5/19, the first wartime file, to provide an index of: Aircraft Serial Number, Aircraft Type, Date of Incident, W reference 2199 Blenheim IV W914 AM266 Catalina II ??/01/1941 W958a AR651 Mohawk IV 08/01/1941 W947 AR658 Mohawk IV 02/01/1941 W945 AR664 Mohawk IV 01/02/1941 W958 AR666 Mohawk IV 06/08/1940 W853 G-ADPF Tiger Moth W822 G-ADVH Monospar W748a G-AESO Tiger Moth W747 K4927 Hart Trainer 08/12/1940 W934 K6011 Swordfish 29/11/1940 W928 K6248 Anson I 21/03/1941 W989 K6272 Anson I 21/06/1940 W795 K6296 Anson I 01/04/1941 W997 K6718 Spitfire P W949 K7019 Harrow II 21/10/1938 W621 K7114 Blenheim I 09/03/1941 W984 K7156 Blenheim I 05/07/1940 W808 K7190 Whitley I 02/05/1939 W654 K7229 Whitley I 05/03/1941 W983 K7260 Whitley I 18/12/1939 W718 K7435 Audax I 11/10/1938 W619 K7594 Battle I 11/12/1937 W581 K7732 Wellesley I 29/09/1938 W617 K7933 Gladiator I 16/06/1938 W604 K7950 Gladiator I 19/11/1939 W709 K8503 Shark II 20/02/1941 W969a K8733 Anson I 21/02/1939 W639 K8996 Whitley III 18/10/1939 W693 K9001 Whitley III 19/09/1939 W684 K9002 Whitley III 21/07/1939 W669 K9223 Battle I 01/10/1940 W886 K9419 Battle I ??/03/1939 W641 K9838 Spitfire I 16/03/1939 W643 K9965 Spitfire I 08/09/1939 W679 K9977 Spitfire I 30/12/1939 W719 L1100 Blenheim I 03/01/1941 W946 L1153 Blenheim I 18/07/1938 W607 L1160 Blenheim I 07/11/1938 W623 L1164 Blenheim I 03/09/1939 W677 L1232 Blenheim I 05/06/1940 W784 L1358 Blenheim I 10/07/1940 W814 L1549 Hurricane I 20/07/1938 W607 L1577 Hurricane I 01/02/1941 W959 L1629 Hurricane I 02/02/1939 W635 L1717 Hurricane I 27/11/1940 W926 L1791 Hurricane I 25/07/1940 W827 L1849 Hurricane I 07/07/1940 W810 L1870 Hurricane I 29/07/1940 W827 L1936 Hurricane I 04/07/1940 W797 L1955 Hurricane I 29/07/1940 W832 L1989 Hurricane I ??/07/1940 W827 L2162 Sunderland I 20/09/1938 W616 L2944 Skua II 27/07/1940 W829 L2946 Skua II 11/01/1940 W724 L3036 Skua II 14/11/1939 W708 L4054 Hampden I 07/04/1940 W749 L4136 Hampden I 20/04/1939 W649 L4161 Hampden I 05/09/1939 W678 L4243 Wellington I 15/05/1939 W656 L4261 Wellington I 01/03/1941 W979 L4290 Wellington I 21/07/1939 W670 L4395 Mentor 21/03/1940 W745 L4547 Oxford I 06/11/1939 W703 L4571 Oxford I 18/09/1939 W683 L4580 Oxford I 13/09/1938 W615 L4702 Lysander I 28/04/1939 W653 L4762 Lysander II 28/04/1939 W652 L4853 Blenheim IV 06/08/1940 W838 L5356 Battle I 29/10/1940 W900 L5947 Magister I ??/07/1940 W807 L5948 Magister I 10/05/1938 W602 L6016 Hereford I 09/05/1940 W765 L6160 Botha I 02/05/1940 W775 L6205 Botha I ??/08/1940 W850 L6612 Blenheim I 19/12/1940 W941 L6679 Blenheim I 16/11/1940 W912 L6970 Defiant I 11/06/1940 W791 L7004 Defiant I 07/06/1940 W787 L7278 Manchester I 21/03/1941 W988 L7596 DH.86 28/07/1939 W672 L8060 Magister I 16/08/1938 W614 L8136 Magister I 11/11/1938 W624 L8331 Magister I 15/04/1940 W754 L8369 Blenheim I 25 ....Read More.Ross_McNeill on 7th November 2011 08:36:22
