    Sgt Dunn was recorded in the No.2 Flying Instructors School ORB.

    January 15th 1942, J8201 P/O R.N. Wycherley and 545613 Sgt C. Dunn, both pupils of No.1 FI course killed in Master T8880. Machine crashed into the sea at the mouth of the River South Esk. Accident investigated by Wing Commander Simpson on 21st January 1942.

    That unit had formed when out of 8 FTS at Montrose when that unit was disbanded. The ORB for 8 FTS continues up to March 1942 but is an exact copy of what is in the 2 FIS ORB.
