The Story has a Sad Ending
Douglas Fairweather volunteered to fly an Anson to Prestwick in apalling weather to pick up a hospital case needing special treatment at a Canadian military hospital in Taplow. The aircraft disappeared over the Irish Sea; Douglas's body was later recovered.
Four months later Margie took off in a Proctor with two passengers - her sister Kitty Farrer (ATA adjutant) and Mr L.H. Kendricks a VIP from the Ministry of Aircraft Production. After engine failure Margie attempted a forced landing on rough ground and was klilled when the aircraft broke up. Kittie recovered from serious injuries in Chester Hospital, Mr Kendricks emerged unscathed apart from a broken thumb.
Margie had given birth birth to a baby daughter three weeks before her husband's death, and was killed herself when her baby was just four months old. ; .
