    Default Anson collision with balloon cable

    Hi Henk

    For what it's worth, I have a note that one person was killed when the Anson collided with the balloon cable, but no actual name.

    Cheers

    For the record I suppose, AIr81 search shows
    Sergeant J Krawczyk (Polish), Leading Aircraftman W C Clarke, Leading Aircraftman A E Day: injured; aircraft accident, Anson N5245, 6 Air Observer Navigation School, 23 October 1940

    And T M B Newton is listed on CWGC burial return as being posted to 14 FTS
