    Default C.G.S. Whitley N1354 on 13th February 1940 Accident - Any Info please?

    Seeking any information please regarding CGS [Central Gunnery School] Whitley "Place of Accident Warmwell", given as Whitley N1354?

    Crew
    26201 S/Ldr E. C. Ingham [Edward Cunliffe Ingham]
    364925 F/Sgt L. W. Peart [Leslie William Peart (48270)]
    564368 Sgt A. E. Lowe [Arthur Ernest Lowe (42966)]
    560360 Sgt L. C. Ozouf [Leonard Charles Ozouf (43697)]
    550715 LAC L. Baker [London Gazette gives William Baker (43159) for 550715]
    P/O F. Searle

    The RAF Museum were unable to send an AM 1180 and I don't have the Warmwell Station ORB for Feb 40, or CGS ORB pages.

    Incidentally, I understand that Arthur Ernest Lowe later went on to be the first Air Gunner to command a Squadron.

    Thanks Mark

    I have the same July 1944 19 OTU Whitley reference as you and the 21st May 1942 with 10 OTU for Whitley N1354.

    However, regarding the 13 February 1940 accident an Air Ministry "A" numbered accident file was opened and there is an AIB reference. Place was given as Warmwell.

    Mark,
    the ORB for the CGS simple states that this was a forced landing and that the aircraft was repairable.
