    Hi

    580250 Sgt Frank Morton

    AIR 27/1547
    Sgt Morton was killed this afternoon. He was returning in the Blenheim from WARMWELL and passed straight over the aerodrome but appeared not to see it. One engine was “cutting” and the plane crashed a few miles from the aerodrome. Sgt Morton baled out at 100' and was killed.

    AIR 81/4832 is a very thin file, containing little more than reports from the ground crew that serviced the Blenheim that morning and a 765(C) that gives primary cause of 'Defect in starboard engine causing it to catch fire'. Location was 'Topsham, near Exeter'. The form refers to a Court of Inquiry but if one was held, the report is not on file.

    Ah, I wondered what you meant Col,
    Yes As I thought I put in my earlier 1941 post that I would no longer enter all losses as many are are now known, so would only enter those of Henk's and those on CWGC that do not have a Squadron link or other details in regard to their deaths.
    I do hope that if members feel that they can add others that's OK with me
    Many thanks
    Alex
