Narrative:
Mosquito HK222 Missing from patrol off Thames Estuary 25.3.1944
Mosquito went missing while on an early morning coastal patrol. Information from the GCI Sector Operations confirmed that they were closing in on a fleeing Luftwaffe aircraft, and as Hunt puts it, “… just as the ‘Tallyho’ was expected, the plots ceased and nothing more was heard from our crew.” Their last known position was off the North Foreland (near Ramsgate in Kent). The ORB later reported that there was “…no evidence available to account for the loss of this crew. A sad blow to ‘A’ Flight and to the Squadron”.
Crew:
F/O (NZ421128) Chisholm Martyn WILSON (pilot) RNZAF - killed
F/O (NZ416568) Alan William WILSON (nav.) RNZAF - killed
