2209061 Flight Engineer Sergeant Hugh Holt
190 Sqdn. Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
Died age 20

Son of George Herbert and Annie Rebecca Holt, of Lowerhouse.


Also Comrade to Flying Officer Ernest Douglas Woods..

They made the ultimate sacrifice together following air operations on the November 21st 1944 Dunmow England Essex. The pilot and crew were aboard the LK276 Sterling and released the glider P-F573 Horsa. The glider landed safley,the Sterling Crashed after hitting some Willow trees and collided with some power H/T cables. The aircraft then skidded along a bank and exploded at Puildings Farm. The board of enquiry blamed the pilot for failing to monitor his altimeter. The complete crew were killed in the crash. Investigations indicated the Stirling was being pursued by a Luftwaffe night fighter which shot the Stirling down. People on the base at the time also confirmed this.
