Avro Anson Mk.I L7056 of 32 OTU

This crash during training out of RCAF Patricia Bay on 30 October 1942, in which four airmen were assumed perished, remained a mystery for over 70 years. They were:

RCAF R/131545 Sgt. William Baird
RAF 129395 P/O Charles George Fox
RAF 129408 P/O Anthony William Lawrence
RAF 1332144 Sgt. Robert Ernest Luckock

and it’s only recently that the wreckage of the plane and the remains of the crew have been found near Cowichan Bay, Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island, British Colombia. Here are some links to the story…
