    Default Hurricane L2066 43 Sqn RAF Acklington 1940

    Hi,
    Anyone know the Sqn code for this a/c I know it is NQ-?

    this if anyone can recall is one of the a/c involved in a collision over Broomhill/Redrow/Acklington (all within 2.5miles of eash other) I asked for Info on for 1940/41 winter.
    The collision involved L1734 (NQ-G) & L2066 (NG-?) on 18 Jan 1940, both pilots Sgt Mullinger RAF & Sgt Steeley RAF were both killed.

    many thanks

    Chris

    Default Sgt Steeley

    Hi Chris,
    Regarding Sgt Steeley see:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=show_thread&om=9195&forum=DCForumID 6&archive=yes

    I corresponded with Sgt Steeley's great niece in 2006. Let me know if you wish to contact her for information and I will see if her old email address is still active.
