Biography contributed by David Barlow

Pilot Officer Harry Martin Radcliffe 407876 (Wireless Operator) of Number 4 (Officer’s) Advanced Flying Unit RAF (West Freugh, Scotland) was detailed to fly on a night navigation flight in Anson aircraft 9176

He had returned to the briefing room to collect his flying helmet and was walking back to the aircraft dispersal along the taxying track when he was struck on the head by the port propeller of Anson LV290 which was taxying in the same direction in which he was walking.
