1941 Unaccounted Airmen Database ReconciliationHello Taking the UK casualties up to the end of September 1941 UK: Arthur Ian PAGET (402211) - the 485 Sqn ORB has him in Spitfire AB903, failed to return from Circus 99 to Rouen. See: [url][/url] Martin Francis SCRAGG (70612) and Joseph FYVIE (403439) - a family tree on has the following for Fyvie: [I]“Was practicing ZZ approaches in Master T8376 with Flying Officer Scragg RAFO as safety pilot and, in reasonable weather conditions, (when) the aircraft was seen at about 1500 feet in the beginning of a spin. Control appears to have been regained at about 500 feet but the aircraft was then in a vertical dive from which it did not recover.” The aircraft crashed in the middle of a field at Priory Farm, Kington St. Michael, Chippenham, Wilts. – Grid reference – ST 892778 around mid afternoon. A local farmer and his son, Bill Isaacs, of Manor Farm were attracted by the loud noise, quickly went to investigate and found the damaged aircraft with the two crew still inside. Even though the aircraft did not catch fire or break up there was nothing to be done for the occupants. The finding of the Investigating officer was that: “The accident was due to collision with the ground following an involuntary spin from which partial control was regained too late. That the cause of the accident is controversial, but possibly due to an error of judgement when changing over from hooded to visual flight.”[/I] Ernest John BRAUND (933623) See: [url][/url] Jerzy ZALESKI (P/783582) and Eugeniusz Rudolf KAJOR (P/781286) - see: [url][/url] William Wight HYMAN (970699) and Harold Cecil FOX (1150675) - the 248 Sqn ORB from 540 records that they were killed in a flying accident 2 miles west of Exford, Somerset.
