    Hello,

    Re: INDIA - LEMON.

    26-1-1944
    No.22 Ferry Control
    Tiger Moth II NL714

    On 25th January, 1944, P/O Westhoff* took off from Allahabad at approx 1100, the aircraft detailed to be ferried to Barrackpore. At 0803 on 26th January, the aircraft took off from Gaya airfield, a night stop having been made there. After take-off, the aircraft flew around the airfield at an altitude not exceeding 200 feet, and then dived within 20/30 feet above the ground. It then pulled up sharply to 150 feet when it executed a stall turn. The pilot inadvertently allowed the aircraft to spin after the stall turn. He made a recovery from the spin but was too low to level out and the aircraft struck the ground. The crew of two were killed.

    AUS35271 P/O (Pilot) Norman Frederick WESTHOFF RAAF +
    1319552 Sgt (Nav./B) John Stanley LEMON RAFVR +

    Both are buried in Delhi War Cemetery.

    Per: Alan Storr.

    * For more on Westhoff, see: BCL7/237 - 30-7-43 - 21 OTU - Wellington IC DV888.
