CRASH OF A WIRRAWAY
17 MILES FROM MILDURA, VIC
ON 6 JANUARY 1943
On 6 January 1943, an RAAF Wirraway from No. 2 Operational Training Unit (2 OTU) based at Mildura, crashed 17 miles from Mildura in Victoria. Both crew members were killed as follows:-
Flying Officer V.F. Curtis (400039) 24 years old
Sergeant W.G. Simkins (420502) 19 years old
I'd like to thank John Lever for his assistance with details of this crash. John Lever is the author of a number of books on RAAF Operational Training Units.
Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
