    Default Unaccounted airman - 12-6-1940

    What caused the death of P/O (Pilot) Cecil T. LOCKE - 72999, whose name I can't find in The Times and Global Flight archives, buried Elloughton (St.Mary) Churchyard Ext., Yorkshire (UK1115).

    Proposed aircraft losses for this day:

    Botha I - L6390 - 'Makers' - dived into ground near Abbotsinch

    Hurricane I - L1895 - 6 OTU - crashed on approach Sutton Bridge.

    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Hello Henk;

    Locke's death is registered at Renfrew, place of death given as East Walkinshaw, Renfrew. This is now hard by Glasgow (Abbotsinch) Airport.

    regards

    Hello

    The National Probate Calendar records the following for Locke:

    LOCKE Cecil Thomas of Thark Heads Lane, Ensbury, Bournemouth died 12 June 1940 at East Walkinshaw, Renfrewshire.

    The entry on the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records him as being a Test Pilot, and his place and time of death as 8.50 p.m. at East Walkinshaw. Cause of death is 'multiple injuries (aeroplane accident). An amended entry records the place of death as 'in a field at Abbotsinch Aerodrome, Paisley.'

    Regards

    Simon
