Hurricane HL887 flown by Flying Officer Ingram crashed on 27 November 1942 and he was killed. HL887 left Sour-el-Arba in the morning detailed to act as a weaver escort to Flight Lieutenant Stewart on a tactical reconnaissance. At 1000 hours when approximately 30 miles east of Tabarka, an enemy dive-bombing raid escorted by fighters was encountered and both aircraft were attacked by four Me109s. Stewart lost touch with Ingram who failed to return to base after the encounter. It was presumed that Flying Officer Ingram had been shot down by the Me109s.
