    Default Loss of Hawker Henley TT III L3293

    On 17 April 1942 Hawker Henley TT III L3293 of 1 Anti Aircraft Co-operation Unit based at RAF Cleave ditched off the Cornish Coast near to Bude. Can any kind soul please shed some light on the names of the crew that day? I believe that one of them was unfortunately killed in the incident.

    TIA

    Hawker Henley L.3293 of No.1 A.A.C.U. 'G' Flight piloted by Sgt S Rogers and TTO LAC R Heaton took off from RAF Cleave at 13.50 for towing sortie when engine failed and ditched approx half a mile off Cleave (16.30). Dispite all efforts TTO LAC R Heaton drowned.

    Hope some of the above of interest.

    Regards,

    Tim
