212 Squadron personnel buried in Madras War Cemetery June 1944Hello all, I am researching news stories and references concerning personnel from RAF Korangi Creek’s Boost Magazine at the moment. In one issue I came across the tragic news that one of the editors of the magazine had died. It turns out that the individual concerned was Warrant Officer DAVID GEORGE FAIREY Service No:758108 belonged to 212 squadron,which flew Catalinas from Korangi Creek and elsewhere in India. Using Geoff’s CWGC search engine it soon became apparent that Fairey possibly died in an aircraft crash along with several other men from the same squadron.All of the men are buried in MADRAS WAR CEMETERY and died either on the 27th or 28th June 1944. Navigator /Bomber Warrant Officer DAVID GEORGE FAIREY Service No:758108 RAFVR Pilot Warrant Officer BRIAN JAMES ADAMS Service No: 1383475 RAFVR Pilot Warrant Officer JOHN BERNARD DUGGAN Service No: 1313494 RAFVR Flight Engineer Flight Sergeant GEORGE ALBERT HOLLOWAY Service No: 756417 RAF Flight Sergeant W.Op./Air Gunner RONALD ARTHUR NEALE Service No: 1208787 RAFVR Sergeant W.Op./Air Gnr ROBERT WILLIAM SMART Service No: 1294239 RAFVR Sergeant W.Op.(Air) DONALD JOHN WRIGHT Service No:1335295 RAFVR Died 28/06/1944 I assume these men collectively belonged to a Catalina crew which may have had an accident around the Red Hills Lake near Madras. Joe Baugher’s US Serials website doesn’t mention any likely crash from India involving a Catalina at this time Or perhaps something else occurred such as a transport aircraft crash or motor transport accident? Does someone know anything about these losses at all? Sadly I lack the magazine issue where the staff explained how Fairey had died Thanks ....Read More.JonF on 4th June 2012 08:09:56
