    Five men died as a result of the crash of Q for Queen.

    Sgt C A Blackwell
    F/Sgt R S S James
    Sgt J R Hughes
    Sgt E Lewis
    Sgt T J Isaacs

    Proceeded on patrol as ordered but crashed on landing at Oban, Argyll, 05:04 hrs after running into a wall of mist during the final approach. The aircraft became a total loss when the depth charges exploded as the aircraft sank. F/Sgt James, F/Sgt Hughes and Sgt Lewis are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. F/Sgt Isaacs is buried in Oystermouth Cemetery, Swansea, Glamorganshire. Sgt Blackwell died a few days later and rests in St. Mary Churchyard, Merton, Surrey.
