Corporal G. A. Hall

Following on from the interesting article by Ralph Warburton about Audlem Cemetery, I thought I would share with you some research I did quite a few years ago regarding Corporal George Arthur Hall, (22), Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, who is buried there.

On 21st April 1944, Cpl. Hall was the drogue operator on a Miles Martinet aircraft (HN962) of 650 Sqn. He was killed along with the pilot, Sgt. J. W. Sigsworth, when their aircraft flew into a hillside whilst in cloud at Ghyll Farm, 2 miles North of Haile, Cumbria.

The aircraft had taken off from Cark on a routine co-operation flight for the Anti-Aircraft army training camp at Nethertown, on the Cumbrian coast. The squadron was based at RAF Cark and provided Anti-Aircraft Co-operation for various training units in the area- target towing, simulated attacks, etc.
