I have full circumstances of this incident including Injury to passenger Joseph Mair Farquhar #550176 who jumped 60 feet into water and the rescue by Swedish cargo vessel Ylva.

However, I lack the full name and details of the Pilot Atkinson. Can anyone ID him, he was a pupil on course no 2 at 8 FTS ?

BTW

suggests Flying-Officer G. W. R. Russell could have been killed on this aircraft. He wasn't he died of illness at the General Infirmary at Leeds.

There is an interesting story behind the HART K4427 incident, but it will have to await until I return from holiday

Thanks
