    S/Ldr Alan Clement Godfrey 39820 DFC and the loss of BEA C-47A G-AHCS 7 August 1946.

    Further to posts #2 and #3 above, as far back as March 2014 I was able to add an account of the loss of G-AHCS and its four cockpit crew, thanks to the help of Civil Aviation Norway staff and the most generous expertise of National Archives of Norway staff, regarding the later career and death of Sqdn Leader Alan Clement Godfrey DFC.

    My account of Godfrey can be seen from here
    http://www.211squadron.org/bristol_b...i.html#Godfrey
    (for 211 Squadron events)

    and from here
    http://www.211squadron.org/bristol_b...#Godfrey7Aug46
    for the loss of G-AHCS and its cockpit crew of four. In summary:

    "Captain LK Fennell DFC (killed)
    First Officer AC Godfrey DFC (killed)
    Navigator GC Charman (seriously injured, died 17 August)
    Radio Operator AC Parker (killed)

    Seven of the ten passengers were slightly injured, as was the BEA Steward, TA Teare.

    By the custom of the CWGC for then serving RAF personnel, Squadron Leader Alan Clement Godfrey DFC is commemorated at Golders Green Crematorium Cemetery.
    Likewise, Warrant Officer George Charles Charman, who lies in Kensall Green All Souls Cemetery and Warrant Officer Alfred Gordon Parker (who lies in Kensall Green St Mary’s Cemetery).
    Their dead Captain, ex Flight Lieutenant Lewis Kenneth Fennell DFC, had left the RAF on 6 June 1946 and was privately buried."
    Sources as noted here

    I must point out that at post #2 above, the source link to the Aircrew Remembered Godfrey entry is deficient, in that
    a) their summary text for 13 Apr 41 events was largely derived from my work and site, and
    b) that for the 1946 loss of G-AHCS was derived wholly from my own work and site
    (and twice there acknowledged, if somewhat obscurely.)
