Stanley George Watts, Flt SgtI am hoping to find anyone who remembers Flight Sergeant Stanley George Watts a wireless operator with 35 Pathfinders Squadron based at RAF Graveley during World War II. Unfortunately he was tragically killed when his Lancaster, PB197, call sign TL-P, crashed whilst attempting to land in fog at RAF Graveley after returning from a mission over Wanne-Eickel in Germany. I say tragically as his was the only plane lost that night of the 18th November 1944 out of over 300. The crew list was as follows:
Pilot,Flying Officer Norman Blackband,AFC,
Navigator,Flg.Off. W Heatley
Air Bomber,Flg Off M Singleton
Flt Eng,F/Sgt G Redford
W.Op, F/Sgt S Watts
Air Gunners,Sgt A Fleming and R Grayson.
The two gunners ironically were the only survivors.
