82nd Airborne. As the operation was a pre D-Day training exercise for the Troop Carrier Groups for their role on D-Day dropping the US airborne; each plane had a member of the airborne Division that they would be carrying. I first came across this tragic story after speaking to a 82nd Airborne Division veteran who told me his platoon leader was killed in an air collision during a training exercise in the UK. With this information and his name I went about trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

This is why I am writing to you as village members of Benwick to see if anyone can help me with any more information about this tragic and sad loss of life. After speaking with a couple of very helpful locals historians, it seems the air crash has become a bit of a mystery with very little of information on the event. Any information big or small will help piece the puzzle together, please contact Darren Bond at 07946437852 or by email drwbond1984@hotmail.co.uk •
