    Default Warwick HG210, 20 Nov 44

    Hi, Im seeking the full crew list for the loss of Warwick HG210 on 20th November 1944, 279 Sqdn missing off Flamborough Head, Yorkshire.

    From a previous posting on here 5 years ago and an answer by Errol a number of the crew have been named. Namely WO Sydney Harold Burrow RNZAF and WO Arthur Dallas Grant RNZAF.

    I have there being 6 on this aircraft, can anyone name the others please ?

    Pilot was probably F/Lt Denys Welply RAFVR (42472).

    thanks in advance, Rich Allenby

    Hello Rich,

    I have the following names, in no particular order:

    42472 F/L Denys WELPLY RAFVR
    117460 F/O Charles Ronald PARSONS RAFVR
    3042043 Sgt Dennis CLOSE RAFVR
    NZ421264 W/O Sydney Harold BURROW RNZAF
    NZ421273 W/O Arthur Dallas GRANT RNZAF

    I have one other name. Whether he is connected with the loss of HG210, I'm not sure. He is:
    CAN J/20810 F/O James Alfred BRYANT RCAF. Elimination/inclusion, would be welcomed.

    All are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Col.

    Your sixth man is indeed the Canadian mentioned in Col's posting. He was a Wireless Op/Air Gunner.

    Cheers...Chris
