John Conybeare Landon & the Aspin Crew

The Aspin crew are buried at Hotton in Belgium (their graves having been relocated from Germany after the war). All crew losses are tragic, but in the case of John Conybeare Landon his death was one of three wartime tragedies which were suffered by the Landon family. What also makes the crew’s story so memorable is the testimony which was given about the loss of the crew by a Frenchman, a forced labourer in Germany, who witnessed the crash in February 1944.

  1. I’ve been meaning to make contact regarding the Aspin crew for some time as I’ve been researching them on behalf of relatives. John Landon joined the crew for that sortie due to illness of the regular b/a Richard Eastway, Sgt Landon had, I believe, only very recently arrived at RAF Kelstern and this was his first op.
