The search for Sergeant Watt

Two amateur historians, Alex Richendoller and Tom Bint, are trying to trace relatives of Sergeant Hance Watt from Coatbridge, a flight engineer in World War Two whose RAF Lancaster H539 was hit on a raid over Berlin in 1944, forcing it to crash, killing all on board.

The pair have set up a website on the history of 626 Squadron at and are keen to trace anyone who may have further information on the sergeant, having already managed to trace relatives of the rest of the crew. If you can help, they would love to hear from you!
