    Default F/Lt Stanbury Killed 10/04/1943

    I was wondering if anybody could tell me how F/Lt Terence Cathcart Stanbury
    was killed on the 10th April 1943. I think he may have been a pilot with the Central
    Gunnery School at the time (this would fit as he was buried at Sutton Bridge)
    but I am not sure.

    I was also wondering if Central Gunnery School looses are covered by the Bomber Command
    Looses volumes. I have looked and couldn't find a mention of them, but it wouldn't be the
    first time that I have missed something.

    Wellington N2865 or Spitfire P7677 both of which crashed near Huntingdon after colliding. Perhaps others will be able to fill in the detail.

    Thanks for that. I'll wait and see what comes up from other Forum members.

    Do you know what units the aircraft were serving with? I know there were a lot
    of Wellingtons on strength with the Central Gunnery School, and have seen a few logs
    in which Stanbury is flying Wellingtons, so him being the skipper of the Wellington would fit.

    Did not yet have F/Lt STANBURY's name on file, however those of F/O R.R. HELY - RAAF 403811 and F/O J.A. TOWN - RCAF J16172, both being killed on Wellington I.A N2865 of the Central Gunnery School. Wellington crashed 2 miles W of Wyton, Huntingdonshire. Spitfire pilot survived.
