Texte "amendment WR Chorley-Vol7-OTU" (Transmis par Richard Sobinski):
OTU/084 25/N2783 Amend: Sgt Coe's injuries were far more severe than, perhaps, indicated for as Errol Martyn writes, "he was admitted to Doncaster Infirmary and (later) transferred to the RAF Hospital Rauceby on 19 November. As a result of the accident he had two fingers amputated, a fractured right leg, and his ears and face burnt. He was discharged from hospital in January 1942. On 10 May 1942, he embarked for New Zealand on repatriation for ground duties. However, he embarked for the United Kingdom in October 1943, arriving in the December, and was accepted for flying duties. Commissioned and on his thirtieth sortie, he died, with his skipper S/L Ian George Medwin RNZAF, on 6 April 1945, when their 487 Squadron Mosquito FB.VI SZ990/E crashed shortly after take off from Rosieres-en-Santerre. Both officers were buried on 11 April at the Anzac Cemetery at Villers Bretonneux, theirs being the first interments here since the end of the First World War."
