    Default Avro 504 D44, 1918

    Hi guys

    I am looking for information on this AVRO 504 serial numbered D44.

    It was crashed at Gullane or Fenton Barns or West Fenton or Drem. These are all names given to the airfield over time.

    The crew were Captain Hugh Fanshawe Glanville and Pte N S Grant.

    Captain Glanville died of his injuries the next day but Grant survived.

    Other than that I have nothing. Searched all of the flight archive and got a little. Got the CWGC info and searched the web for various information but the info tends to repeat itself.

    Any idea if you can get accident reports for 1918 accidents. Just trying to find out anything to do with this crash.

    Scott,

    Given that the accident occurred in the UK the RAF Museum at Hendon should have a Casualty Card for the event. There is also a good chance that the card carries a short summary of the Court of Inquiry.

    Scott,

    Try the Aerodrome ebsite at http://www.theaerodrome.com/services/gbritain/rfc/. This deals specifically with WW1 matters and has a number of dorums.
