WWII - casualties KenyaHi pzulba, Re: Basso VD: A. On the 3rd (January,1945), too, there was loss when Sgt V D Basso, a 19-year-old Rhodesian, went missing over the target area in (Spitfire LF.IX) MK405. His Spitfire was seen to explode in mid-air, other pilots having seen 'spirally white trails moving upwards' just moments before the aircraft was lost. It was assumed that these were some kind of anti-aircraft rockets. Basso, despite his age, had become No.43 Sqn's dive-bombing ace, and in 20 attacks he had achieved a 100 per cent success rate. B. No.43 Squadron Roll of Honour. 3/1/45 Sgt Victor David Basso. Shot down by anti-aircraft rockets in Spitfire IX MK405. he was buried in Faenza War Cemetery, Italy.
