Vickers Wellington Mk.IC T2707 / JM-Z of No.20 Operational Training Unit, crashed on the 13th February 1942 in Glen Affric, 20 miles ESE of Kyle of Lochalsh
|Five other crew||Unrecorded||Unrecorded||Survived|
The crew were on a night cross country training flight from Lossiemouth when the starboard propeller came off, the aircraft could not maintain height on a single engine in icing conditions so the crew abandoned the aircraft, which then crashed in Glen Affric.
Sgt Clifford was killed on the 7th July 1942 while serving as a pilot with No.148 Squadron, he, and 4 other crew are buried at Fayid War Cemetery in Egypt. They were flying in Wellington Mk.IC DV603 and given that crews were formed at Operational Training Units, there is a possibility that they were also onboard T2707. The sixth man would have been a staff instructor from 20 OTU.
