    Henk,

    Re: Whirlwind I P7057.

    From Jeff Beaumont's No.263 Squadron site ( I can't get the link to work):

    No.263 Sqn. ORB. F.540 - Warmwell.

    May, 1943

    May 7th.

    Strong West wind, Cloudy. Sgt Thould coming in to land, held off at 30 feet and wrote off a Whirlwind near the Watch Office. This was the first accident to be ascribed to carelessness, for ten months. Sgt Thould was detached forthwith to the Air Crew Refresher Course at Brighton.

    Sgt Thould, was in fact; 1246400/175972 P/O (Pilot) John THOULD RAFVR. He was killed in action on 13-10-1944, in No.263 Sqn. Typhoon Ib MN476. Shot down by flak, south-east of Hoogstraten.
