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 :-

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 !!)
