    Default F/Sgt. Edwin Kaye Pannett - 209 Sqdn.

    Hi All,

    I was hoping to clear up some confusion. I am researching F/Sgt. Pannett and I'm currently looking at his career as described in the accident report of the crash in which he was killed.

    It states that after his training he was posted to Number 209 Squadron (on 7/10/43) accumulating some 220 hours on Martinet aircraft. From July 42 to Feb 45, 209 Sqdn. flew Catalina IIA aircraft (Jefford) so how could this be.

    I know there can be quite a few inaccuracies in these reports, would this be one??

    Many thanks in advance,

    Russ

    Looks like a typo for 290 Squadron which flew Martinets from Dec 1943 to Oct 1945. 290 was mainly involved in targetting towing for anti-aircraft training in Northern Ireland, before moving to Belgium in early 1945 . Does the location fit in with the records?

    Default F/Sgt Edwin K. Pannett 18 April 1945

    Russ,

    Seeking details of F/Sgt Pannett's death. Was this an air crash in a Martinet and if yes, where did this happen?

    This to establish if No. 290 Squadron suffered fatal air casualties in its Belgian period, the more so because F/Sgt Pannett's squadron is not mentioned on the CWGC website.

    Any info welcome, thanks.
