Query: 550930 Jack HUTCHINSON - Air Force Medal?Brian, It does indeed state that, but I think it's perhaps not 100% correct. Bill Chorley's BCL 1940, and BCL Volume 7, have the two Hampdens colliding on June 13th, and "Sgt. Hutchinson" as one of the crew of the 61 Sqn aircraft. The casualty pack I mentioned in my post is listed here: [url]http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?21755-Air-81-Trance-4-Part-2-Air-81-2000-to-AIr-81-2299-Now-with-Open-Status[/url] [I] Pilot Officer A C Rowe (RNZAF), Pilot Officer M S Blyth (RSAF), Leading Aircraftman F C Evitt (RCAF), Pilot Officer D A Helsby, Sergeant W J Hutchinson: injured; Pilot Officer G A Atkinson, Sergeant S J Golding: killed; collision on take-off between Hampden L4138, 16 Operational Training Unit, and Hampden P4339, 61 Squadron, 13 June 1940.[/I] Unless I've added two and two together and got five, of course - wouldn't be the first time...! I can't see a 16 O.T.U. loss for June 1st. Regards Simon ....Read More.wwrsimon on 5th June 2018 11:02:19
