    Default Y0016 - Whitley V - 77 Sqdn - "KN" - 06/07-06-1940

    Hello,

    Y0016 - Whitley V - 77 Sqdn - "KN" - 06/07-06-1940
    P/O(P) Dunn, A.W; P/O(P) Montagu, C.J.D;
    Sgt(Obs) Lucas, ; AC1(FG/Ba) Kennedy, A.L injured; AC2(WaG) Martin.

    This unknown has it seems been answered in Chorley BCL Vol 1 (2nd Edition).
    It has on page 148 - reference to 09/10-June 1940.
    Detail on Kennedy is that he received another injury, the second within a week.
    So sort of confirms the 06/07-June accident and perhaps with the same aircraft which on the 09/10th was N1372.

    Anyone anything additional ?

    Alex,
    According to the ORB, it was on the 5/6th June that Kennedy was injured and admitted to hospital. Ops planned for 6/7th cancelled due to E/A active in vicinity of aerodrome. The aircraft was N1476 on on 5/6th, and it was completely burnt out after P/O Dunn (not Dunk) brought it down at Finningley after directing the crew to bale out. Kennedy was also admitted to hospital on 10th June with a back injury following the crash landing.

    Hello Alan,
    Thanks for correction re DUNN, my tablet seems to correct my spelling with the wrong words :(
    Also thanks for confirming the correct a/c serial number for the 05/06-06-1940 ( 06/07-06-1940 ) event. Not the same a/c on the 09/10-06-1940.
    Alex
