Some modern (2010) views of the incident area, taken from the same direction as those 70 years ago, are also included (photographs by John Shepherd).

Kenneth Evans died when the Wellington bomber he was training in crashed in St Andrews Park, Bristol on 30th April 1941.

He was training to be a pilot although he was not flying the plane that night. My grandfather, Charles John Clarke, was the front gunner that night and also died in the crash.

I have created a website with all the information I have found on the crash:

Please contact John Clarke if you have any further information about this incident via above website.
