|Fatal Accidents around Malmesbury, Wilts||I am researching Malmesbury's part in WWII and presently am transcribing the ARP Control Room logbook. It reports many aircraft crashes and I have been able to find out about some of these through the Forum and books. A few are more difficult. Can anyone help with the following;
12 August 1941 At 09.15hrs an Airspeed Oxford from Little Rissington and Miles Master T8378 collided in mid air and crashed close to Hullavington. Both crews were killed. Sgt F Sedas and LAC A Mikolas from 9 STFS were in the Master. What was the identity of the Oxford, its unit and names of the crew?
9 March 1943. Tiger Moth T7919 was wrecked at Pondhill, Charlton at 13.00hrs. It came from Cliffe Pypard and the two occupants were reported to be severely injured. Did they die – if so who were they?
22 May 1943. Spitfire G KP EP763 crashed at Idover Demesne Farm, Dauntsey at 15.45hrs. The pilot from Charmy Down was killed. Who was he and what was his unit?
9 September 1943. Mosquito HL805 from Lyneham was burnt out at Vines Farm, Grittenham 11.30hrs. One crew member bailed out, the other was killed. Who was he and what was his unit?
12 February 1944. At 11.00hrs Airspeed Oxford NN306 crashed at Malthouse Farm near Brinkworth. Two crew were killed. Who were they and what was their unit?
If anyone is seeking details of non fatal crashes I'll gladly see if it was reported but I am aware that many incidents for some reason were not recorded. That is surprising to me when I see some of the trivia that is mentioned! ....Read More.||Malmesburyman on 3rd August 2009 02:49:00|
