    Default P/O Castelow, Ben Hall 122436

    Hi All,

    Whilst tieing up some loose ends regarding crashes/losses in Cornwall have come across the loss of Hurricane X AG190 of 1449 Flt., U/C collapsed undershot landing at St Mary's Isles of Scilly.Can find no pilot for this a/c. CWGC has the above as died on this date with no unit/squadron listed. Does anybody have any further info regarding the above so that I can at least discount him as a possible?

    regards

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    Castelow was killed in Spitfire N3273, of 57 OTU, Hawarden, which crashed at Redbrook, nr Whitchurch in Shropshire.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers, Tom

    Colin,
    have you got the aircraft Form 1180? If not, Hendon should have it. Are you certain the crash was fatal? The Form 1180 would seem to the obvious route?
