Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 21, 1944

1391069, Flight Sergeant Ronald David Payne.
Air Bomber, 190 Sqdn. Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.
Died age 21
Dunmow Essex

Son of Daniel William and Florence Victoria Payne; husband of Kathleen Phyllis Payne, of Crookham, Hampshire.

Also Comrade to Flying Officer Ernest Douglas Woods.

They made the ultimate sacrifice together following air operations on November 21st 1944 Dunmow Essex. The pilot and crew were aboard the LK276 Stirling and released the glider P-F573 Horsa. The glider landed safely,the Stirling crashed after hitting some willow trees and collided with some power high tension power 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.
