Looking for info on LAC Albert E. CURTICE - 100666, buried Kensington (Hanwell) Cem., Ealing, Middlesex.

"LAC" and svcnr "100666" (Offrs nr ?) as per CWGC.

Can't find his names in The Times archives.

Harvard I - N7029 - 10 FTS - crashed in forced landing at Pontlyfine, Cairns. (115/4352).

Harvard I - N7077 - 10 FTS - crashed in forced landing Llangurig, Montgomery (for this serial already as a casualty: Sgt John W.R. PARR - 745512).

Swordfish - K5978 - TTU - crashed in forced landing near Bischops Waltham, Hants.

Regards and thanks for your help.

Henk.

Thanks Dave. Age 49 and assume that he may have 'died' on active service.

Regards,

Henk.
