410826 - Unaccounted airmen - 26-8-1941I concur with John, Halifax's L9495 and L9490 were nearest two 35 Sqdn Yorkshire-based incidents prior to Johnston's death; should be die as a result of some form of flying accident, however I do not have any deaths atributed to either of these Halifax incidents. L9495 was piloted by S/Ldr Tait DSO DFC, no injuries reported. L9490 damaged on the same day, initially as Cat B, then re-Cat E (or W), no crew given. The problem begins here. Almost always any serious air-related injuries in the Vale of York, the Friarage Hospital at Northallerton, or Fulford Hospital, York dealt with them. So I can't work out if he had survived this incident from mid-July 1941 why he was taken to a hospital in Leeds. Can I throw another incidents into the hat.... 7 aug 1941, Whitley Z6835 of 58 Sqdn crashed into a hanger at base, what if he sustained injuies as a result of this ? I have no other Linton-based Units having damage between this date and his death anywhere else in Yorkshire, or any flying accidents anywhere near Leeds in the days upto his death. perhaps the closest to Leeds was Defiant V1180 north of Sheffield already discussed. Is the Halton Roll correct ? Anyone any clues ! ? Cheers Rich ....Read More.Rich Allenby on 5th December 2008 01:32:20
