Stirling W7441 donated parts

We had a visit last week from Rob Thomas, who’s uncle was Sgt. Alec Donaldson, W/op of W7441 of 7 Sq. The Stirling was shot down into the sea off Denmark during an operation to Stettin, on the night of 29.9.41. Sgt. Donaldson was captured and made POW. Rob has dived on this wreck and recovered some parts of the Stirling.

The picture below shows Rob with some of the items he’s donated, of note is a tailwheel tyre complete with inner tube and part of the pilot’s sliding window.Stirling visit
