    Default Harvard crash 26.01.1940 F/O (The Hon) Drogo Montagu

    Can anyone supply me with details of Harvard crash at RAF Aston Down on 26th Jan 1940.

    The Instructor was F/O The Hon William Drago Sturges Montagu - he died in the crash.

    If anyone has details on the Instructor I would be very grateful.

    Harvard P5862 crashed at or near Aston Down 26/01/1940, Montagu, and his pupil, Taylor GS 36199 were killed. Both deaths are registered at Stroud.

    A Google search on 'Montagu' throws up many reference to the family, however I note that The Huntingdonshire Roll of Honour incorrectly places Drogo's death in Scotland. I will advise the Webmaster of that error.
