Narrative:Failed to recover from an unauthorised attack on a civilian Dominie and crashed. Robin Brown's book "Shark Squadron" tells a slightly different tale:" The Squadron's first fatal accident occurred during a detachment to RAF Odiham on 27Jul52 when P/O C R Donaldson flying No 2 to F/O Keith Williamson was involved in a dog-fight with the Odiham Meteors. He appears to have lost control and dived away vertically, startling a passing Anson pilot who thought he was being bounced, but the Vampire never pulled out."
