    Default 23 Sqn Query 1 YP-Q 13th August 1940 force-landed Colly Weston

    Can anyone put a serial to a 23 Sqn YP-Q Blenheim that force-landed at Colly Weston due to engine failure on 13th August 1940: Crew were P/O Pattinson and Sgt McAdam (Not Patterson as in The Blenheim A Complete History)

    This crew is

    P/O Aberconway John Sefton Pattinson #40563 British

    and Sgt William David McAdam #519802

    more of McAdam later

    Paul,
    Just a very minor nit-pick. I started work at RAF Wittering in the early 50's. It was then (and on RAF History, and on OS) Collyweston. No space between the 'Colly' and the 'Weston'. Lord Burleigh retained the shooting rights over both airfields (and still does, as far as I am aware?). But, there was some minor poaching by the Met staff at weekends!!

    PS I think Ross has solved/confirmed the Duxford Mark 1 Blenheim code mystery
