431102 - Unaccounted Airmen - 2-11-1943I can't find Crockford in any of the casualty lists F/O I. Mackenzie, DOAS Cascom 329, note his age was 30 per the CWGC. there is a 29 yr old of that name in Strathcathro district, Angus which is as likely as any to be him I think. R F Young DOAS CAsCom 335 K George is listed PREVIOUSLY REPORTED WOUNDED OR INJURED ON ACTIVE SERVICE, NOW REPORTED DIED OF WOUNDS OR INJURIES RECEIVED ON ACTIVE SERVICE.—F/O. K. George. That was publised on March 16th 1944. His name was previously publised on Oct 14th 1943 as injured. the following names might be related as they were publised as injured in the same list - doesn;t imply they were injured in the same event F/O. K. George; Sgt. R. M. Hartley; L.A/C J. W. Holt; L.A/C. G. T. Howells; Sgt, P. B' Morley; Sgt. R. C. Paine; Sgt. L. Torry; Sgt' J. H. Tottman; Sgt. F. Wilson. I estimate about three month delay in name reporting so F/O George might have been injured in summer 1943. ....Read More.dennis_burke on 11th September 2013 07:02:36
19 Sqn loss, June 12th 1945, F/Lt A. J. F. Young 116448Hello everyone I'm trying to find the aircraft involed in the loss of F/Lt Arthur James Frederick Young, 116448 of 19 Sqn (who also went by the name James Arthur Frederick Young), who was lost on June 12th 1945 whilst flying from Acklington. The Form 540 has the following entry: "[I]No flying in the morning owing to weather. In the afternoon, both flights did a practice interception. The weather was not too good with a lot of low cloud about. A flights interception went according to plan. Unfortunately a most unhappy incident occurred in B; flight. F/Lt. Clayton and F/Lt. Young were doing the intercepting; they both had to descend through cloud at one point and on coming through it, F/Lt. Clayton found he was by himself. F/Lt. Young was never seen again, and after pairs had searched the sea for most of the evening, a Norwegian ship reported having seen an aircraft dive into the sea and explode at approximately the same place and time. This was assumed to be F/Lt. Young. A most unfortunate accident and a great loss to the Squadron.[/I]" I'm assuming it's a Mustang involved, so can anyone give a serial number...? Many thanks, Simon ....Read More.wwrsimon on 17th February 2015 07:22:25
