Wellington Ic P9292 crashed in the North Sea on 24/10-1940.

The aircraft belonged to RNZAF (RAF) 75 Sqn Bomber Command and was coded AA-?.
T/O Milderhall OP: Berlin

The aircraft is assumed to have crashed into the North Sea due to the fact that the body of Air Gnr. P/O Frederick B. Cleak was found drifted ashore on the island of Fanø. He was laid to rest in Gravlunden cemetery in Fovrfeldt, Esbjerg on 12/12-1940.

Pilot P/O Rex M. Sanderson, Observer P/O William J. Finlayson RNZAF, W/Op-Air Gnr. Jack Gibbs DFM, Air Gnr. Sgt William G. Hitchmough and Air Gnr. Reginald W.B. White have no known graves and are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. According to FAF Finlayson was found by a British trawler and buried at sea.
