    Default 31 July/1 August 1942 - 14 OTU - Hampden I L4117


    According to Bill Chorley (BCL7/139), on 31 July/1 August 1942, 14 OTU Hampden I L4117, returning from ops to Dusseldorf, crash-landed in a field at Loddiswell, Devon. He gives the following crew:-

    P/O D J Curtin
    P/O S J Walker - Inj.
    Sgt R Hawkes - Inj.
    F/O H G Clarke RAAF - Inj.

    I believe the crew was:-

    J/9340 P/O Donald Joseph CURTIN RCAF (Later DFC & Bar + 25-2-43 - 106 Sqn - BCL4/49).
    J/10012 P/O S J W WALLER RCAF - Inj.
    R/77977 Sgt R V HAWKES RCAF - Inj.
    AUS401300 P/O Harold George CLARKE RAAF - Died of Injuries, Knightsbridge Cottage Hospital, 1-8-1942.

    Flight, October 1, 1942, pp.377-8 (Cas. Comm. 158), confirms the injuries to WALLER and HAWKES, and the death of CLARKE.

    Can anyone confirm the service numbers and forenames of WALLER and HAWKES?

    I know of:

    All help appreciated,
