Fairey Battle L5760 of No. 2 Bombing and Gunnery School (2 BAGS) RAAF made a forced landing approximately 14 miles north west of the Port Pirie airfield in South Australia at approximately 1520 hours on 5 November 1941. The pilot was Sergeant Gilbert Francis Daw (406348) and crew member LAC Robert Stephenson Knott Nugent (407510). Both were uninjured.

This aircraft was later involved in a more serious accident about 3.5 miles west of the Port Pirie airfield on 22 November 1942 killing the pilot and crew member.

 

Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
