Biographical information

  • Son of William McNaughtan and of Annie Brodie McNaughtan (nee McCallum), of Lyttelton, Canterbury, New Zealand.

    On 19 December 1942, McNaughtan was serving as air bomber aboard Stirling bomber R9265 OJ-N, which was taking part in an air test on that day. At 1615 hours, while the aircraft was carrying out a height and load test, both wings broke during a steep dive and the plane crashed in Bedfordshire, killing all eight crewmen. Aside from McNaughtan, there were two other New Zealanders aboard - F/Sgt G E Tait (41229) and Sgt J F Alpe (411734). See their Cenotaph records for more details.
