On 2 May 1944 Typhoon MN465 in company with other aircraft took off from Thorney Island and set course for the French coast. When the other aircraft settled down some 2 to 3 miles off the English coast, Flying Officer Glenn was not in the formation and it was presumed that he had returned to Base because of some defect. It was when the formation returned to base that he was found to be missing. A 1949 report recorded that Flying Officer Glenn had lost his life at sea.
