    Default For Jim and 'Voytech'

    Thanks Jim.
    "KU CZCI Poleglych Lotnikow 1939-1945" has on page 322 also szer.ucz.strz Tomasz RZEZNIKIEWICZ on W5154. He lies buried grave AE.32 Morpeth (ZARSKI grave AE.29).
    Let's wait for a reaction from our Polish friend 'Voytech'.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Just been typing up entries from the Skeabrae Station ORB and found an interesting entry relating to LAC Lane. It was entered under the 30th March.

    March 30th 1943, “At 0943 hours a Lysander of 1491 (F) G. Flight (Skeabrae) took off with an airman, No.1244896 LAC Lane, L.C.A., still on tail. Aircraft climbed to over 200 feet and crashed and airman was thrown off and killed. Pilot and operator received superficial injuries only. Aircraft complete write off.
    Court of Enquiry A Court of Enquiry was convened for 1400 hours in the Corporals Club, R.A.F. Station, Skeabrae, on Wednesday 30th March 1943 in order to investigate and enquire into the accident to Lysander aircraft T1580 involving the death of 1244896 LAC Lane, L.C.A., and to allocate responsibility if any. Station Adjutant to see that the necessary witnesses were in attendance. Present – F/’t Dunville (66 Squadron) F/O Nicholl (1476 A.S.R. Flight) P/O Brunner (66 Squadron)”

    Thanks Al. LANE was in my files with a note that he was killed when thrown from a landing aircraft at Skeabrae; his death was registered at Sandwick, Orkneys.
    Now where I've an a/c serial and that Lane was ON and not IN the Lysander, I can update my file.
    Regards,
    Henk.
