400710 - Unaccounted airmen - 10-7-1940I didn't forget to add N5019 into my files. I quoted from the Air Britain Aeromilitaria "Crashes in UK" and on this list N5019 was omitted. I probably forgot to delete the names from my "unaccounted" list. I should have found their names if I had checked my files on their svcnrs.

Anson fates 1940Hello Martin, I looked on Geoff's search engine for the 10th July 1940 and these names for RAF came up. LAC Dale 616618 Sgt(obs) Dent 755832 P/o. Goldsmith-Jones 41282 Wop/AG Hannan 629054 F/o Lincoln 70400 A/c Ward 906836 P/o watson 79577 A/c Wilkinson 626304 Sgt Wop/AG Williams 646080 I could not get 17 OTU to work. perhaps you can match some names to the aircraft. Dent,Hannon,Watson and Williams were crew in Anson N5019 of 15 OTU lost this date along with Sgt. A C Smith who was injured (ref: BCL vol 7 OTU's 1940/47). This would in effect leave us with five for at least one more anson crew . Good luck Alex ....Read More.Alex Smart on 14th August 2010 11:06:07

Anson 148 Sqn K5024 loss 18 Jan 1940Ross Firstly thanks for the offer, and sorry for not getting back sooner as I had to help with an incident Sunday/Monday all sorted now.. Anyway K5024/N5024 Issue from Air 14-47 Air Ministry Dept Z A Harrogate Yorks 30th April 1940 Emergency Parachute Jumps "I am directed to refer to A.M.O.A. 155/1940 and to say valuable data has been collected since the introduction in July 1939 of the questionnaire at para 2 of the above AMO which will materially help towards the detailed analysis of reports covering a period of twelve months which is to be made. "The following reports of emergency parachute jumps known to have been made have not yet been received" 8.8.39 38 Sqn Wellington L4235 9.8.39 102 Sqn Whitley K8950 [B]18.1.40 148 Sqn Anson "K" 5024[/B] I think last incident is confusion of Anson N5019 of same Sqn on 11.1.40 in the same general vicinity of the crash of N5024 Dalwood, near Axminster, Devon. Pilot Captain (Flt/Lt Thomas William Piper resumed control) and other 4 crew bailed out And my mystery 1940 bailouts are as follows 1) Probably between January 15th to Feb 5th 1940 Sgt Herring and AC2 Drake (probably same incident) 2) Probably between 5th Feb 1940 and 14th Feb 1940 Pupil Pilot G Hobbs 3) Probably between 22 Feb 1940 and 26 March 1940 P/O Charles Francis Ambrose and P/O James Reginald Bryan "Jim" Meaker (Probably same incident) I can't be more specific as the List I have only gives years and I [I]assume [/I]the names are in consecutive order (most are) so I am bracketing them via known "other" incidents So for example Ambrose and Meaker are between Ft/Lt Ian Richard "Wedge" Gleed on Feb 18th 1940 and P/O William Hubert Rigby "Nits" Whitty on March 26th 1940 Many Thanks Paul Paul ....Read More.paulmcmillan on 29th March 2016 05:48:07
