    Default Hurricane L1947

    Hi guys

    Minor mystery. I have seen it written that a Hurricane (L1947) of 504 Squadron crashed following a night sortie on 30 April 1940, in which the CO, Sqn Ldr R.H. Watson was killed.

    He doesn't appear on CWGC, so presumably wasn't killed?

    Cheers

    Listed on CWGC as

    90059 S/L Rupert Hartley-Watson, so unfortunately he did not survive
