Lost airmen of NewcastleHello John, Re: 992598 Sgt Ernest SCOTT. 20 February 1942 17 OTU Blenheim IV Z5899 Training T/o Upwood for a low-level (between 500 and 600 hundred feet) navigation exercise; base-Gillingham-Stratford-upon-Avon-Hungerford-Cottesmore-base. While flying on the second leg, the crew strayed 15 miles off track and at 1028 the starboard wingtip was sliced off by a barrage balloon cable in the Birmingham defensive area. Out of control, the Blenheim smashed into the ground. Sgt Kyle RCAF and his Jamaican observer, Sgt de Lisser of St. Andrew, rest in Sutton Coldfield Cemetery, while Sgt Scott lies in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (St. Nicholas) Cemetery. Sgt W T Kyle RCAF + Sgt L S de Lisser + Sgt E Scott + See: BCL7/100. Re: 2212847 Sgt William Kennedy. 17 December 1944 17 OTU Wellington X LP306 Training T/o 1354 Turweston for local flying practice.

5 (C) OTU - Beaufort JM452 - 18-6-1943Hello, On the 18-6-1943, 5 (C) OTU Beaufort I JM452, flew into high ground at Ballytoag, below Davis Mountain, Co. Antrim. I believe the following four airmen were involved in this incident: AUS413516 Sgt Arnold Mease BLACKET RAAF - Injured 1526244 Sgt J G MILLER - survived J/110986 Sgt D S SMITH RCAF - survived J/97078 Sgt F J WALLA RCAF - survived The title of Blacket's undigitised A705 has this incident occurring at Ballytong, Northern Ireland on 28-6-1943. Blacket's A705 has an Accumulation start date of 20-6-1943. They could hardly open a file on 20-6-1943 for an incident that happened 8-days later! Can anyone assist with this dilemma?
