    Hello

    P/O (Pilot) Oswald DAVIDSON - 108660 and
    P/O (Pilot) Horace I. HEWLITT - 108665 - their respective Graves Registration Report Forms confirm their unit as 4 F.T.S.

    AC1 Wilfred L. ATTER - 1236756 - the Lincolnshire Echo of December 1st 1941 reported the following:

    Airman's Funeral - the funeral of A/C Wilfred Leslie Atter, who was accidentally killed while on active service, took place at his native village of Swayfield (Grantham). A detachment of Airmen, A.T.C. and Home Guards attended.


    The Graves Registration Report Form gives his unit as 19 O.T.U.

    Sgt (Pilot) Alan DAVIS - 742310 - the Graves Registration Report Form gives his unit as 19 O.T.U. as well.

    Thye Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website has them both on the same page - Atter died at 8.30 p.m., with Davis at 10.45 p.m., both at Kinloss Aerodrome, and both due to 'multiple injuries.' Also:

    AC2 William DEAN - 1036648 - the Graves Registration Report Form gives his unit as 19 O.T.U. as well.

    Regards

    Simon

    Hello,

    Re: 742310 Sgt (Pilot) Alan DAVIS A.F.R.Ae.S*., RAFVR.

    From Chris Goss' history of No.102 Squadron:

    Sergeant Ed Cooke.

    'In about October 1941, a few of us were sitting around chewing the cud and one of us wondered what our chances were of completing a tour which was 30 trips or 200 hours. At the time, I had 20 trips to my credit so off we went to research the Squadron records and finally came to the conclusion that we had a three per cent chance of survival! Most of us after a few trips became fatalists and believed that if there was one there with our name on it, so be it but we were going to do everything in our power to survive. I was lucky. I completed my tour and followed my pilot, Alan Davis, to instruct at 19 Operational Training Unit. When I got there I had found that Alan had just been killed - he had walked into a propeller.'

    * Davis was a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society.

    See:
    It's Suicide But It's Fun The Story of Number 102 (Ceylon) Squadron 1917-1956.
    Goss,Chris.
    Bristol:Crecy Books,1995.
    pp.58-9.

    Hello,

    UK.

    1236756 AC1 Wilfred Leslie ATTER RAF.

    ATTER, Aircraftman 1st Class Wilfred Leslie, Royal Air Force (1236756), 19 Operational Training Unit, Kinloss, Moray, Bomber Command, 16 November 1941, Accident on the Ground, Whitley V P5075, Accidentally killed when loading bombs on a Whitley of 19 Operational Training Unit at Kinloss, Age 20, Swayfield (St Nicholas) Churchyard, Lincs.

    See: Failed To Return, Part 2, A-B/Hobson/N&MP/2019/p.255.

    Possibly accounts for 1036648 AC2 Willam DEAN, as well, q.v.

    Not much help here - see 16 Nov 1941.
