    Default Unaccounted airman - 24-6-1940

    What caused the death of Sgt (Pilot) Walter HENDERSON - 748484, previous reported missing later presumed killed on active service (Flight Global), buried Horden (St.Mary) Church Cem., Durham County (UK356).
    It's possible that he was on one of the two Blackburn aircraft (G-ACLC and G-ADFS) that collided mid air and came down in the River Humber.
    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Hello Henk
    His death was registered at Scunthorpe which is on the south bank of the Humber so could very well be one of the pilots of the A/C you mention.
    Regards

    I am not sure whether I can add very much here but I am Shaun Haselden a relative of James H Haselden the pilot instructor who was flying G-ACLC on that very day. James would have been my uncle had he lived long enough. It was in his memory that I grew up with an obsession for military aircraft especially WWII and the inter war period.

    In fact I now live in the village of Tetney very close to RAF Grimsby (Waltham) where James learned to fly as part of the Civil Air Guard.
