Final Efforts To Find Family Of War Hero

Posted on August 5, 2016

AC1 Shaw was the wireless operator/machine gunner on board Blenheim P6926 of 59 Squadron when it was lost without trace on a sortie in the Sedan area of France on 14 May 1940. Over 70 years later, a member of the French public submitted a French Red Cross report about a crash in Vrigne-aux-Bois on that date. An independent expert has been able to confirm that the aircraft described in the report was a Bristol Blenheim and detailed research into the fate of all Blenheims lost on 14 May 1940 has proved that it was Blenheim P6926 that crashed at Vrigne-aux-Bois. The 3 crew members were buried as unknown airmen in Choloy War Cemetery.
