    Default Usworth a/c crash in Street

    Hi,
    Can anyone help? Did this actually happen? As mentioned in a newspaper article and from a local person-in 1941/1942 an RAF fighter crashed in the middle of Havelock Terrace,
    Washington,Tyne & Wear.This street no longer exists but it was very near to RAF Usworth.
    The pilot was killed and no other casualties.Can anyone confirm this?

    Regards,Philip [Toml]

    Philip,
    One possibility, Hurricane Z4046 crashed at Washington, pilot R78237, Sgt J.A. Parker RCAF killed, pilot failed to recover from spin and dived into the ground.
    Forgot to say date, 28/08/41.

    Hi Phillip,

    Try contacting your local Register Office, they should be able to give you an idea of the area on the death certificate of R78237 Sgt. J A Parker. Not always exact but a good starting point.
    If this turns out to be the chap you are looking for a copy of the certificate now costs 9.

    regards

    Parker is given as the casualty at Washington in TSGNO by Allison

    The cost seems to vary lately. I picked one up from a local office and it was 7. I had one posted: POST FREE, and it cost me 8! Queer!
