A brave airman

A survivor of a wartime Stanhoe plane crash has died.

Sergeant Ivor Prothero, who escaped from a burning aircraft with the help of the late Charlie Seaman, died on 22 May aged 95.

The news comes from Sgt Prothero’s son-in-law John Lister. “He enjoyed a long and happy life, with thanks to the help given to him by Charlie Seaman,” Mr Lister reports.

Sgt Prothero was the rear gunner in a Wellington bomber that crashed behind Stanhoe Hall in the early hours of 12 June 1943. Seriously burned, he was one of the three crew members who escaped; the other two were killed. Air Raid Precautions (ARP) warden Charlie Seaman received the Imperial Service Medal for his part in the incident.
