Crash Sergeant Pilot R.F.C. Dean

The Sergeant Raymond Frederick Charles Dean was a newcomer to his squadron, "The City of Gloucester Squadron" and, at 9:40 on the morning of November 17, 1941, he set off from his base at Ibsley in Hampshire. in the company of Officer Stansbury. They were both flying Spitfires and set off on their usual reconnaissance flight over Normandy. Sergeant Dean's Spitfires bore the no. ADI29. After approaching the French coast the two planes fired on what they thought was a distillery (Maybe Phosphates?), an electrical transformer and German soldiers. When they decided to return Officer Stansbury saw Sgt Dean enter a rain cloud and completely lost sight of him, He circled around and tried to contact him without success.

Officer Stansburyreturned to lbsley in the late morning (11:07) and announced that Sgt Dean was missing.
