    Default Albermarle 6th June 1944

    Hello to all

    I am looking for the serial number and the squadron of the AW-41 Albermale crashed early the morning of the 6th June 1944 just north of Saint-Sylvain 3.4KM SSW of Saint-Valery-en-Caux (Ht Normandy)
    Another one is said crashed near Caen at 5AM .

    Maybe ORTU
    With the following crewmembers
    F/O Howe Graydon Raymond RAAF (KIA)423743
    Sgt Scargill Clifford (KIA)1681158---Sgt Pearson Henry Edward (KIA)1868478---Sgt Neale Stanley (KIA)1581137---Sgt Belcher Ernest Leonard (KIA)1611070---Sgt Cane Bernard Percy (KIA)4601469---F/Sgt Clark Alan Albert (KIA)904519

    Phil,

    There was a post on this forum in June 2004 regarding this loss.

    It appears that the crash near Saint-Valery-en-Caux involved Albemarle V1745 of ORTU, No 38 Group.

    Hello,

    Yes, V1745 crashed near St Valery and P1442 of 42 OTU should be the one which crashed near Caen.
