    On 04-Jun-44 Martinet HP422 of 2AGS collided with Anson LT788 at Carse of Ardersier, Inverness. The Anson survived

    Cannot trace any other air/air collision which would match your time-frame

    Default anson accident dalcross 1944

    I was training as A/g in 44 firng at drogues towed by I believe Martinets. While we were up we heard an Anson calling for it's tow aircraft then saw the Anson turn up into the drogue cable, this gradually sliced through the wing base and the Anson spiralled down and broke to pieces. I believe ther were 6 trainee gunners on board plus the pilot

    On January 23rd 1944 five Ansons from No.2 AGS force landed at various location because of a snow storm. There were no fatalities but there were injuries from one of the aircraft (LV127) which struck a hanger at Longman.

    Dellann, the incident that you remember occurred on the 28th June when Anson MG244 collided with the cable being trailed from Martinet MS724. The ORB records 5 killed when MG244 crashed near to Nairn railway station.

    Do you have any further information about the accident on 28th June 1944, please? If not, can you direct me to where I might find more details? My uncle was an air gunner who died in that incident and I am trying to establish details of his service history.

    My uncle, John Richard Webb, an airgunner under training, was killed in the accident to which you refer on 28th June 1944. Did you by any chance know him?
