I wonder if anyone can point me towards fuller information, regarding the crash of Hawker Hind (trainer biplane) K6758 on 4th March 1940?

The pilot was from 5 FTS and he was reportedly killed, after losing control in bad wearther and crashing onto Hoylake Beach.

I have seen a picture, in a Boumphrey book with I think a Hind trainer being pulled out of West Kirby marine lake.

Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton used to house a WWII aircraft recovery museum. Don't know if they still have it there or if it's now just a Radio Museum, but they might have more detailed information. Try giving them a call, or contacting them by email.

You probably already know this but there was a German plane crashed at Bromborough Dock that same year :-

Fort Perch Rock still has the aircraft recovery museum in the cellars!

Still there, if he can get hold of Dougie Darroch he should be able to help, next year the radio museum is doing a mock up of the Titanics radio hut for the 100th year of the Titanics demise, not an advert as I thought most of Wirral knew about Perch Rock Fort.

Yes, I've seen the same photos (2 I think) of a Hawker Hart being retrieved from WK Marine Lake but this was a pre-war happening, I believe, without fatalities.

I do recall the WK event being mentioned by my late Mother but she never referred to anything similar in Holake - maybe things were kept qieter during wartime!

Are any local paper archives available for on-line examination, I wonder?

Thanks for the old newspaper website but available dates seem to be mainly 19th century..............

Ref. the Hart crash into WK Marine Lake, there is a film of the retrieval at approx. 1min 50secs into the YouTube video on the site below:

(actually, I suppose it could be a Hawker Hind - I can't really tell the difference, vs. Hart !!)
