1953 Meteor Accident on the Hill
Recently we had an email from Dr. Geoff Mead who wrote:
"My father Raymont Geoffrey Mead and his co-pilot Richard Anthony Fox-Linton were killed when their RAF Meteor inverted in flight and crashed into trees at Kingham Hill School on 9 November, 1953. I'm wondering if you have any reference to this event in your school archives? I'd be very grateful for any information you can make available."
We sent an email to those who are in our database from around 1953 and received an overwhelming response. Thank you for sharing your recollection of the event and for filling in the details from so long ago. Dr. Mead was so touched by your responses that he is planning to join us on June 2 at Chill on the Hill. This will be his first visit to KHS.
