    Default Circumstances surround loss of RAF 209 Sq Catalina Ib S/N FP107 8/7/1944 Seychelles

    Aircraft Accident / Loss Entry
    Date of Crash 08 Jul 44 Aircraft Name Catalina Ib Serial Number FP107
    Unit 209 Sqdn Operating Airfield Country


    Greetings, Does anyone know anything regarding the circumstances of the loss of this aircraft ?

    One of the crew William HATTON (1116266) Air Gunner, is buried Victoria (Mont-Fleuri) Cemetery, Seychelles, the other crew members are commemorated on the Alamein Memorial, Egypt.

    is it safe to assume the aircraft was lost over sea and only Sgt HATTON's body was found ?

    Would this likely be an accident , so late in the War ?

    Many thanks
