    Default LAC Thomas Peter Watt Pilot u/t RAF Edzell

    Hi All,

    Another airmen I am having trouble finding info on who is buried in Tingwall,Shetland is LAC Watt, he is given as U/t pilot with RAF Edzell and he died poss in an accident on 19th Dec 1941. I know Edzell had Proctors,Oxfords for training up there and wonder if his death was related to one of these types?

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Regards
    Dave.

    Dear Each/All
    My Shetland Mole has come up with following. (NB You should be aware that many of the folk in them parts are still recovering from Hogmanay, Up-Hellya, and other pagan celebrations!) Therefore, this copied signal is "over & above the normal call of duty"!!!!

    The reason he was buried in Tingwall is because he was a Shetlander. He was born on 3rd November 1919 in Mayfield Cottage Scalloway. His father was James Alexander Watt, born 1893, died 1973. His mother was Margaret Ann Thomson, born 1892 died 1986. Both the Watt and Thomson families have pedigrees extending at least back into the1700s.

    Never let it be said . . . .

    Hi Peter,

    Just spotted your post re the family, many thanks for this had only the CWGC details, every little helps. We are planning to include a couple of airmen from Orkney & Shetland war memorials in each quarterly copy of our `Argonaut` group magazine, so details on family background are always welcome.

    Regards
    Dave
