    Default Training Accident Canada - 13 Dec 1942?

    Hi all

    I am trying to assist a friend in finding out what happened to a relative who died in Canada, the date being given on CWGC as 13 Dec 1942. He is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery and this states its casualties are associated with 33 Air Navigation School. The individual concerned was LAC Ernest Johnson.

    I would be grateful if anone can give me more information in what I assume was a training accident please

    Many thanks

    Try this summary for starters!

    13-Dec-42 6709 Anson 33 ANS 1 mile south-east of Avon 4
    Whilst flying in very poor visibility, the aircraft hit some high trees and crashed.
    Sergeant Richard George BROAD 21
    Leading Aircraftman Ernest JOHNSON 36
    Leading Aircraftman Charles Geoffrey CHADWICK 20
    Leading Aircraftman S I BRESSLOFF

    This record is part of a 'work in progress' but it might get you moving. Of interest is that the aircraft's RAF serial was W2491 and although some Ansons supplied to Canada continued to operate using their RAF serial, many were renumbered
