The plane crashed into the sea near to the English coast, and all the crew were killed. Three bodies, one being that of Pilot Officer Taylor, were recovered by a lifeboat. One of the crew is missing [Sgt. Stewart]. Pilot Officer Taylor was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Taylor, of "Westholme," College Road, Crosby, and formerly of the Wheatsheaf Hotel, Ormskirk, where the deceased officer was born. He was 30 years of age. He was educated at Holmwood, Freshfield, and St. Bees, Cumberland, from where he went to the Hudson Bay Company, Canada, for five years. On returning to England, he had been in the corn and provender business until September, 1939. Previous to then he had joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, and was called up on the commencement of hostilities as a leading aircraftman. He gained his commission within a few months as pilot officer, and had great flying experience in many parts of the country.[/I] Regards Simon ....Read More.wwrsimon on 8th May 2018 04:42:21
