A while back a friend of mine gave me some information about a Halifax crew which crashed near Colchester in 1943. I'm just curious if anyone can add anything. Info I've been given: I think the aircraft was listed as between serial range of DT767 - DT808, Halifax Mark 11. It belonged to 102 Squadron. It took off from Pocklington at 19.20 25th February 1943, encountered severe weather and crashed 20.24 at 'Badliss Farm' near Ardleigh (on the outskirts of Colchester). Crew were: The Pilot : Sgt Charles Henry Bray - buried at St. Catherine churchyard Ringshall Row B, age we think was 27; The Air Bomber: Sgt. Thomas Bertam Barfoot - buried at St. Leonards church Birdingbury Warwickshire; 'south of church;' age 19. Observer: Sgt. Leonard Victor William Herbert, buried at Eltham cemetery Woolwich, section A grave 299; age 22. Wireless Operator: Sgt. Cyril James Drane Smith; buried at Patna old cemetery, Ayrshire, grave 149; age 23. Air Gunner: Sgt. John Dudley, buried at Titsey St. James churchyard, Surrey S.E. corner; age 20. Flight Engineer: Sgt. Edward Leslie Widgery, buried at Oystermouth cemetery Swansea Glamorgan, Section N grave 193, age 35. Air Gunner: Sgt. Irving Louis Sanitsky, buried at Jewish section of Norwich cemetery Norfolk, grave 235. This crew member was in the RCAF. His parent apparently were Ida and Simon of 'Fall River Massachusetts, U.S.A. His age was 22. Some eagle eyed members on here will know that back in 2013 friends and I constructed a memorial for the crew of a Lancaster which crashed almost the same date one year later (25th April 1944). This wasn't that far away from this 1943 crash strangely enough. In 2013 we went to great lengths to have an unveiling ceremony with many relatives present. I'm not planning to do anything to same extent (it was very hard work), but at the same I'm thinking it would be nice if we could find out a bit more about this1943 incident. If anyone's willing to look up information, verify what the above is correct and / or obtain pictures of the graves around the country for me I'd be grateful if they could post on here. I know there's some great historians on here. Many thanks in advance if anyone's interested in a little research.
