WAAF & RAF Casualties queryTony, And from my trilogy 'For Your Tomorrow - A record of New Zealanders who have died while serving with the RNZAF and Allied Air Services since 1915 (Volume Two: Fates 1943-1998)': Sat 6/Sun 7 Oct 1945 TRANSPORT COMMAND Special transport flight from Egypt to England. 299 Squadron, RAF (Shepherds Grove, Suffolk - 38 Group) Short Stirling IV LJ668 - took off from Egypt captained by Fg Off C T Dillon, RAF, bound for England, but diverted to Rennes, France, because of high fuel consumption. On entering the circuit difficulties were encountered with radio communication between aircraft and ground, whilst approach to the airfield was hampered by a 200-foot cloud base and inadequate airfield lighting. Although homed on to the correct runway and seen from the ground, the captain could not see the flarepath when at 150 feet. He carried out an overshoot, called at 0028 to advise he had only 10 minutes fuel left and immediately crashed while turning to port, and burned out. The six crew, eight RAF, two Navy and 10 Army passengers died, three New Zealanders being amongst the latter. All 26 are buried at Rennes. Passenger: 822452 Cpl Margery GREENFIELD, NZ WAAC - 31. Passenger: 814774 Sgt Marie Elsie Isabel INNES, NZ WAAC - Age 26. Passenger: 818051 Private Margaret Jean MORTLOCK, NZ WAAC - 24. Errol ....Read More.Errol Martyn on 18th August 2009 05:41:36
