    Default Robert Inglis

    Does anyone know anything about what happened to Sgt Robert Inglis, service no. 1552301, died 13.12.1942, aged 21, RAFVR, please? He is buried in Stane cemetery, Scotland.

    His family are trying to find out what happened to him; there is confusion about whether he was on a mission with Bomber Command, but he does not seem to be mentioned in Chorley's books anywhere.

    Thank you.

    Hello Helen,

    Could the date of death be a type error? 23.12.1942 instead of 13.12.1942?


    According Chorley, he was on board Lancaster I R5699 QR- from 61 Sqn. T/o from Syerston 1716 on 21 Dec 1942. Returned early and crashed 2030 short of the runway. No injuries reported according Chorley.

    More details on page 284 (Chorley 1942).

    --------------------

    Robert Inglis was son of Mr and Mrs Robert Inglis, 43 Bon Accord Crescent, Dykehead. Earlier employed in the Laboratory of the Shotts Iron Works.

    Regards

    I eventually found him in the No.2 (Coastal) Operational Training Unit ORB, I knew I had typed the name Inglis recently.

    December 13th 1942, 11.30 Beau VI EL.279 spun in, total wreck. Pilot 1552301 Sgt Inglis killed. 1390274 Sgt Pettifer H. killed.

    The aircraft crashed at Dunnington (the one near Catfoss not the one near York)
