42475 S/l E.r.m.appleton.Gentlemen, There was some unfinished business in regard to Appleton. I mentioned that there was an entry in Flight July 15, 1943, listing him as a F/Lt - Wounded or Injured in Action. With a clue from Army Air Forces that he was detached to Chelveston from Mepal (Base of No.75 Sqn from 28-6-43), I was able to locate the following: 12-13 May 1943 75 Sqn Stirling III BK721:AA-Z Op: Duisburg T/o 0037 Newmarket but crashed after the starboard inner engine failed, causing the Stirling to clip Devil's Dyke coming down SW of the airfield. F/L Appleton recovered from his injuries, only to lose his life on 31 August 1943 while flying in an American B-17 Fortress. The three RNZAF airmen are buried (in) Newmarket Cemetery. F/L E R M Appleton Inj. Sgt R F Harvey RNZAF + Sgt J S Andrews + F/O J Johnston RNZAF + P/O S J Clubb RNZAF + F/S S G Cocks RNZAF Inj. Sgt B A R Moore + Sgt J Wykes + See: BCL4/141 Col. ....Read More.COL BRUGGY on 2nd February 2010 12:03:23
