Birth: unknown
Death: Sep. 21, 1944

David Stenhouse Black was a son of David and Lilias Wight Black of Bridgend, Midlothian. He was married to Annie May Black.

Black flew to Arnhem from Down Ampney airfield on a resupply-mission on 21 september, around 11.00hrs. He was the wireless operator in C-47 (KG-417). The plane was hit by the load from another (American) Dakota flying above, lost a wing and crashed north of Driel on the southern bank of the river Rhine around 17.15 hrs.

The load that hit the plane was a aluminium container and the Dakota that dropped it was one of a goup of American aircraft, which apparentely shouldn't have been there...
