    Default AVro Tutor I K3454

    Hello

    A picture of Tutor I K3454 emerged on facebook. I've given the details from Air-Britain's K File, but I'm asked who were the two casualties killed in her crash, in December 1941. I've searched the net and the non-accounted list, and failed to find any answer.

    Thanks in advance

    Joss

    Simon,

    You will notice that I have deleted my posting. I checked the old Unaccounted thread a found they weren't involved in the loss of the Tutor.

    What originally tossed me on this, was the fact that both Callaby and Carter are listed on their Graves Registration Reports as being with 2 CFS.

    Done the same Col to avoid confusion - you must have deleted it as I was posting.

    I did not rush to answer as someone else may have had more precise details, but I have
    Peet WV and Heath (no initial available) injured in the accident to Tutor K3454.

    http://www.aviationarchaeology.org.u...rashes1941.htm

    This site has K3398 (on the same date) associated with these two airmen.

    Hello

    Thanks to you all, and apologies for the mistake about the date of accident... 18/11/41 as per the Air-Britain "The K file", not December (didn't have the book with me when I started the thread..). So it seems that either checking the accident card at Hendon or the unit's ORB at Kew would clear up the question.
    Regards
