Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • William Ingram was the son of Duncan Ritchie Ingram and of Elizabeth Crockor Ingram (nee Revell), of Harrogate.

    Flight Sergeant Ingram was the Wireless Operator of a Lancaster which took part in a raid on the U-boat pens at Trondheim, Norway. The plane failed to return from the raid and was found three days later by a farmer on a sandbank off Sunk Island Sands. The plane appeared to have crashed into the ground on the return from the raid which had been undertaken at low level. Because the crew had been on duty the previous night, fatigue was considered to have been a contributing factor.
