    Default S/L Paul Stuart Hutchinson 34125

    I'd be grateful for any information as to the circumstances which led to the death of S/L Hutchinson on 15 July 1941. He was with 210 Sqn at the time, so I assume he was KIA. (CWGC details not required.)

    TIA Brian

    I can find a Patrick Stuart Hutchinson with that service number. Some information on the crash on the following link:

    Hope this provides a start point for you

    Why on earth did I call him Paul - another senior moment. Many thanks for your help gentlemen.

    On 22 September 1936 Hutchinson was with the Duxford Met Flight and conditions were very poor when he departed for the 7 am met ascent. Having completed the ascent the visibility was still very poor (mist and fog) and he was unable to find Duxford. Hutchinson first made a precautionary landing on Newmarket Heath, then had another unsuccessful attempt at finding Duxford. This time he attempted a landing near the railway station of Six Mile Bottom on the Newmarket to Cambridge line; unfortunately he overshot the field and ended up on the railway line at 8.30 am, shortly before the next train was due.

    Warned by the station staff of the obstruction, the train driver stopped just short of the aeroplane (a Bulldog - K2963); the passengers got out moved the aircraft off the line. The journey then continued having been delayed just 30 minutes. (Source: The Times; 23 September).

    A nice little story and one that made me wonder how Hutchinson met his end.
