    Default 1126447 Sgt C W Davey 500 Sqn KIA 2nd April 1942

    Hi,
    I am trying to find out the circumstances for the loss of Sgt Davey, I believe 500 sqn was part of Coastal Command during 1942. Can anybody shed any light on the aircraft lost and cause? Thanks in advance, Rick

    Hi Rick

    Hudson V
    AM659
    MK-A

    Op A/S sweep, Stornoway, 12:05 hrs

    F/Sgt D A T Owen
    Sgt G V Brennan
    Sgt G W Carter
    Sgt C W E Davey

    Failed to return due to navigation error and fuel shortage. At 19:50 hrs the aircraft signalled that it was 90 miles from base and had fuel for 45 minutes. Last heard sending SOS at 21:19 hrs. F/Sgt Owen and his crew are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Regards
    Ross
