Red seats in bomberHello In a previous post last December, I was trying to elucidate a crash on Ouessant island, north west of Brest. I called again my contact who did show to the last witnesses alive the picture of a crashed Whitley « near Brest », but they kept on thinking the aircraft was a Wellington. They do confirm the light grey or white colour. But I keep on thinking, as proposed by Ross, it may be Whitley V, P5050 lost on 04/02/42. What about the red seats seen in this bomber by a 18 years old lady ? Was this usual in some particular aircraft ? in Coastal command ? Wouldn’t any member have the POW report of any of this crew of 502 Sqn Whitley V, P5050. This may answer the question where they fell, and say which one was lightly wounded.

139 sqn airman iinfo req.Hi Peter From Chorley Bomber Command Losses Vol 3, Gold was the pilot of a Whitley V ,Z6728, engaged on an operation for SOE. This could have been agent or supply dropping in an Occupied Country, a type of Op for which 138 Sqn became one of a number of Specialist Sqns. The normal crew of a Whitley was 5 but this one was carrying 7 and the Loss card mentions an 8th for whom Chorley could find no details.It is possible that the extra crew included Agents.The a/c came down in the sea and Chorley reports seeing a report that 2 of those on board died of exposure and he believes that they were found on a Dinghy that was washed ashore nr Hawkinge on 9/2/42. The rest ,incl. Gold, have no known graves.
