    Flying Officer Antony Patrick Benson Graham SUTTON (42278)

    39 Sq ORB:
    The dark cloud of tragedy again appeared over the Squadron when P/O Cowman, P/O Sutton, Sgt Pinder and Sgt Lunn failed to return from "BUNG" on 21.11. but this cloud was almost cleared when on 25.11. the crew was rescued from dinghy by a Walrus. It transpired that the Beaufiort had forced landed in the sea owing to engine failure and that the crew had been able to take to the dinghy unijured except for the observer P/O Sutton whi suffered a severe head injury. After many cicissitudes including the rescue (the Walrus being unable to take-off with the extra load) the crew arrived back to the Squadron expect for P/O Sutton whi, we regret to say, died and was buried at sea.

    AIR81/10458 Pilot Officer A P G B Sutton: died of injuries; Pilot Officer J Cowman, Sergeant R J P Lunn, Sergeant J Pinder: missing now safe; aircraft failed to return from operational flight over the Mediterranean Sea, Beaufort N1098, 39 Squadron, 21 November 1941.
