    Sergeant Henry Ernest GEEN (744982) Observer 1940-11-28 101 Sqdn United Kingdom

    http://www.epsomandewellhistoryexplo...kG.html#GeenHE


    GEEN, Henry (properly Harry) Ernest, Sergeant. Observer (744982)

    Harry was subsequently posted to 101 Squadron. On 14 November 1940, he was part of a crew led by Sgt Pilot B J Redmond aboard Blenheim Mk. IV, N6236, SR-? ready for as mission attacking targets in Wanne-Eickel on the Ruhr. They took off at 17.18 hours from RAF West Raynham, Norfolk. During the operation, the locknut on the spider in the starboard propeller reduction gear became loose, causing the reduction gear casing to be churned away. During the return flight over the North Sea, the damage led to the airscrew shaft and propeller falling off. With commendable skill, Sgt Redmond succeeded in getting his aircraft back within reach of base with only one engine but, on circuit of the aerodrome whilst trying to land, crashed at 22.58 into West Raynham village.

    The pilot, Sgt B J Redmond, and rear gunner, Sgt A G Woodruff, suffered only minor head injuries in the crash. Harry, however, was left critically ill with a fractured skull. About a fortnight later, he died of these injuries. The precise date is uncertain. The Squadron Operation Record Book states that he died on Tuesday 26 November 1940 at 11.40. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission's database has the date of death as 28 November, and that is what appears on his gravestone.

    Aircraftwoman 2nd Class Sheila Ursula CARPENTER (880889) 1940-05-07 United Kingdom Leicester (Gilroes) Cemetery

    Coroner's Comments on Operation Criticisms were expressed by the coroner at a Barrowgate. Yorkshire, inquest yesterday on a First Class Aircraftwoman who died after operation, following which, it was stated strip gauze was left in the throat. The inquest was Sheila Ursula Carpenter (20), Highfield Street, Leicester, member ol the Women's Auxiliary Air Force. A verdict of death by misadventure was returned. It was stated that the operation—for the removal tonsils —took place at Royal Bath Hospital, Harrogate. The coroner, Colonel Innes Ware, said there was always a certain amount of risk in an operation, but one did not expect that ordinary routine matters would be left to chance.
