    Default 269 Sqn North Africa-September 1943

    A post on another forum requests information of a death on 269 Sqn on 19 September 1943 from injuries sustained on the previous day.

    R/92182 WO Edward Handley Robinson RCAF died of injuries on the 19 September 1943. The poster's information is that Robinson was a crewmember of an Albemarle.

    Do any forum members have the 269 ORB for that date? Wondering if it was a combat injury or an accident and names of other crewmembers and their fates.

    Cheers, Ken

    Hi Ken

    He was in 296 Sqn and died from injuries sustained to day before whilst flying in Albemarle I, P1528 of No 296 Sqn, which crashed in an attempted forced landing on take -off following an engine failure. He is buried in Le Petit Lac Cemetery

    No other crew members injuried.
