Plane Crash - 1943
Airplane crash on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14), 1943, near Dartmouth, N.S. William "Hector" Thompson was one of "4 men" who died that day and the crash site was not discovered until maybe a year and a half later.

More information - Hector Thompson was based in Gander, NF., in charge of land operation communications. Gander played two very important wartime roles. It was "The" major airport joining Europe to North America and most military traffic passed through it either coming or going and has continued in that capacity to this day.

During the war, Gander was also a busy base for the Atlantic patrol and it was from there that submarine patrols flew over the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The plane Hector was in was a Hudson bomber and today, a google search revealed it could be used for low level bombing (as low as 50 feet), which would make it ideal for submarine "search and destroy" missions.

On February 14, 1943, a navigational training flight took off from Torbay, Newfoundland (north of St. John's). The crew included Pilot Officer Thomas Watterson, from Manotick, Ontario (10 mi. south of Ottawa), Flight Sgt. Robert Rolfe of Huntingdon, Quebec, and W/O James R. Stick of St. John's, Newfoundland. There were three passengers: W. Hector Thompson, Madoc, Ontario, John Hook, Brockville, Ontario (his parents lived in Bridgeport, CT.), and a Lt. Snell of the U.S. Army. Hector was on his way to a convention in Halifax and planned to take leave to see his wife and three children in Ottawa after the conference. When the plane failed to land at the air force base airport in Dartmouth, they were reported missing and were later declared dead. Twenty-one months later, on November 6, 1944, the crash site with "6 skeletons" was discovered by a hunting party a mere 11 miles from the airport. With the exception of Lt. Snell, the others are listed on the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

John Hook and James Stick are buried in Mount Hermon Cemetery in Dartmouth. Robert Rolfe, Hector Thompson and Thomas Watterson were returned to their homes for burial (Watterson is buried near Manotick at Kars, Ontario).
