Hi Tony,

Anne

The only other details that I have to hand are from the "Armed Forces Memorial Roll of Honour" and they are:-
Service number, 8031549 - Station, RAF Leconfield - Place of Birth/Home Town, Menstrie Clackmannanshire, - Date of Birth 2nd February 1949.

I will have to go back to the RAF Forum to see if anybody can answer the 'What was she doing on the flight' question.

Tony

Re- Pilot Officer Susan McLaren. No specific reason for her being on the flight the only additional details are:-

The Spring 1970 Air Force List gives her as an acting Pilot officer with graduation date of 1 Aug 1969 in the Secretarial Branch (Supplementary List).

Whether her Secretarial duties involved compiling a report, as this was a training flight, is speculation.
