    Default 6OTU Sutton training losses

    Trying to find details of P/O Stanley John Thompson RAFVR (86402) died 13/10/40. Think he was 6OTU as he's buried at Sutton Bridge (CWCG) but records for this unit are difficult to find and what I can find looks incomplete w.r.t. accidents/crashes etc. that this unit suffered and cant find a record for him.

    (Am looking for this info for a relation of his)

    Hello,

    P/O S J Thompson was killed when No.56 OTU Master I N7962 stalled during practice approach and dived into ground, Wisbech, Lincolnshire, on 13 October, 1940. The aircraft was destroyed by fire.
