|OTU 10 - Whitley P4997 - Accident 12 September 1940||Hi
Still trying to understand the service of my grandfather.
D M CLARK
RAF # 911391 (1940-1943) or 148038 (After 1943)
Found this in the database
[TD]Whitley V [URL="http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/details.php?uniq=P4997"]P4997[/URL][/TD]
[TD]Aircraftman H N Kingdom: killed; Flight Sergeant L F East, Sergeant Steel, Sergeant H J Dowling, Sergeant L G Smith, Sergeant D H Gilbert, Aircraftman D M Clark, Sergeant E A Hodges: uninjured; aircraft accident, RAF St Neots, Whitley [URL="http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/details.php?uniq=P4997"]P4997[/URL], 10 Operational Training Unit, 12 September 1940.
Now according to my grandfathers service records he was at that time at OTU 10. I found a Air1180 records for that aircraft.
But OTU 10 ORB didnt show this aircraft, so I am assuming it was a training accident not an operation. Where would I find out info for training accidents? Anyone have any info or images on this event.
Thank you in advance
