Spitfire Crash site Rusthall, Kent

I hope this is the correct forum for my request.
I am looking for any information concerning the crash of a spitfire close by Rusthall primary school in Kent which occured during the 1940's.
I am sorry but I cannot provide any more detail than that.

S/Ldr. Dart DFC ex 204 Sunderlands was killed flying a 703 Naval Air Squadron Mosquito. The following details from Colin Cummings' 'The Price of Peace':
21/3/46 - Mosquito XXXIII, TW235 of 703 Naval Air Squadron crashed at Rust Hall, Kent. Sqd/Ldr Kenneth Charles Daymond Dart DFC 42397 RAFVR. Lost control of the aircraft during low level aerobatics and the Mosquito dived into the ground. He was the sole occupant of the aircraft.
Otherwise looks as if you need to do a bit more research to pin down date etc...
Of course, W/C Bob Doe, DFC and bar, had his home there, not getting confused about that?
