    Hi Jonny, yes, that's him! His brother told me that traffic control was "not what he wanted", so he transferred to the RAF!

    Thanks for the dates, they're most useful - I presume you mean 25th January 1941 though?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Have just moved my father to a retirement apartment in Glastonbury to be near my sister and in moving all his flying memorabilia wondered how the book is coming on. He is now 91 and in average health but he is still telling all his tall tales, lies and war stories to anyone who will listen!

    Would be interested in an update.

    All the best

    Anthony

    Sorry Tom. Missed your response. Yes, I meant 1941. My typo.

    The hardback book, which runs to 304 pages recording 700 aircraft crashes and illustrated with nearly 300 photos, retails at £25 and is published by Bridge Books of Wrexham. The book is available on various online stores (amazon etc), via the publisher (Bridge Books), the RAF Museum shops at Hendon and Cosford, or direct from myself. For those that wish to order direct from myself, I can offer signed (should you wish) copies at £25 + free postage. Please email me at tomthorne83ATyahooDOTcoDOTuk (replacing the AT's and DOT's with the appropriate) to arrange payment (via cash, cheque, paypal or online transfer) and delivery.

    Default Whitchurch/Tilstock incident 2 Feb 1943

    My father W T Martin (1331938) was a rear gunner injured in a Whitley prang at 81 OTU Whitchurch Heath on 2 Feb 1943. The pilot is given in your injury list - Sgt A C Best (1425181). The aircraft Z6496 lost an engine on approach, crash landed and burnt out. The crew were injured but not killed. Other names of the crew were Sgts Waugh, Wisbey and Hockney. Bit of a long shot but I wondered if your records show more about the incident or the crew. I am also trying to find out if my father ever flew again, or whether injury precluded this. By mid-1943, he had moved out of flying and into other RAF duties (fire fighting instructor). I already have the basic incident report and my father's service record, as releasable. There is a possibility that he was involved in a second incident in April 1943, but I have found nothing so far. Thanks

    Default Flight Sgt McGrath

    Hi Tom,

    I noticed the name Duncan M McGrath on your list, which seems to fit with someone I'm researching for a friend. I have his service record but some of it is smudged and unclear and I can't see anything that links to Shropshire.
    Do you have details of where he was based during the crash, so I can link back to the record?

    Many thanks

    Julia

    Default Shropshire's casualties and aircraft crashes

    Hi
    Can I just say that there is amazing amount of work by thorne83 gone into this thread!

    I joined when searching for details of Aircraftwoman 2nd Class 470079 Vera Hughes and this is/was the only site that had information at the time :)

    I did find more details eventually but I will certainly be looking in from time to time!

    Here's a link to our page for Vera Hughes just in case it's of interest to anyone:

    Le200,

    many thanks for your kind words! Should you be interested, I have the full crash report for the incident (numerous pages long).

    JuliaP and dmart7,

    I would be very interested to correspond, so perhaps you can email me at tomthorne83ATyahooDOTcoDOTuk replacing the AT and DOT with the appropriate.

    Many thanks,

    Tom

    Hi, I'm trying to find the family of Flt Lt Douglas Stewart who was the pilot of Lancaster PD214, 106 squadron. The plane crashed on 6.10.44. My grandfather was the flight engineer. We have recently found the crash site, which is due to be excavated soon. He was the son of John and Ada Stewart of Shropshire and was married to Vera Elizabeth Stewart. Any help would be much appreciated
    many thanks

    Julie,

    I have the service file of the RCAF member of this crew.

    If it helps any, V.E. Stewart's address at the time off loss was 345 Inverleith Street, South Carntyne, Glasgow E2.

    Regards,

    Dave
