NOTE: Sir John Valentine Carden, 6th Baronet MBE (6 February 1892–10 December 1935) was an English tank and vehicle designer. He was the sixth Baronet of Templemore, Tipperary, from 1931. He was killed in an air crash near Tatsfield, Surrey on 10 December 1935, while flying on a Sabena airliner as a passenger. Which means that, although he was the registered owner of Miles M.2 Hawk G-ACVM, he was not involved in the accident, as he had pre-deceased the accident by some six months. The 7th Baronet,Sir John Craven Carden, was also not involved; he was born in 1926, so was only 10 years old at the time. The identity of the pilot and passenger - who, in the absence of any information to the contrary, are presumed to have survived uninjured - are not known at this time
