    Default 24th April 1937 GAUNTLET K7868 of 151Sqn crashed in forced landing. Pilot?

    All I believe this is this incident

    Saturday 24 April 1937 , Gloucestershire Echo , Gloucestershire, England Crash Dislocates Rail Traffic PLANE ON LINE Crash Dislocates Rail Traffic A single-seater R.A.F. 'plane from North Weald aerodrome, piloted by "Flying-Officer Frank White", crashed at Colchester to-day on the railway line the junction of the by-pass and Ipswich road, completely dislocating railway traffic from Clacton and Brightlingsea to Colchester and London for several hours. The pilot was uninjured.


    However, I am having trouble with "Flying-Officer Frank White" I can only find P.O John Henry White on 151 Sqn at the time. He as Posted to 7 FTS 1 June 1938

    Can anyone confirm the pilot? It appears incident is not listed in ORB

    Ross/Col Thanks - While these old newspaper reports are good to give you some data they need to be confirmed with other sources!
