Anson 148 Sqn K5024 loss 18 Jan 1940Bomber Command confused at the time (as is the web site in present day) F1180 shows no parachutes used - aircraft hit rising ground so too low to abandon and the correct serial is N5024.

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
