Loss of Bleheim P4842 17 february 1940Greetings, About 12 years ago I was working on a project relating to the loss of F/O. John Christopher Howell BLAKE 39196 RAF Pilot of Blenheim IV P4842 UX-? OF No. 82 Squadron lost on a reconnaissance of the Elbe estuary 27 February 1940. I have the information from Chorley’s Bomber Command Losses 1940 and the Sage War Cemetery Register in which his family is not mentioned. I do not have Chorley’s biog’s that may give me some answers. I would be pleased if anyone can enlighten me on anything about this loss, his family or anything appertaining to Blake. His father was a director at Cierva autogiro Co. The reason is I use to know this pilot when I was about nine or ten years old (1935-36) as he was my father’s apprentice at Hawker Aircraft Ltd in Canbury Park Road, Kingston-upon-Thames. He took me for a ride in his Bentley down the Kingston By Pass at 72 mph, fast for those days. If anyone has anything that would assist I would appreciate it very much as this project is rather a personal one I embarked on. Cheers, Digger. ....Read More.Arthur Arculus on 25th October 2008 10:16:01
