1940's History - a Memory of Abingdon-on-Thames.
I am trying to obtain information regarding a mid- air collision over Bracknell Berkshire in the 1940’s.
Believed to be 1943 but could a few years away from that date.
It is believed to be between a Hurricane and a Spitfire but there is also no confirmation of that.
The incident happened opposite what is now the Shell garage above the Ascot road with wreckage falling around that area. Sadly both pilots died in the incident.
That the crash accrued is not in doubt as eye witnesses are still alive as they were very young at the time.
To date I have been unable to find any information particularly the date. The date is important as all official records need this for reference.
Can anyone pleas help?
