Re: No.219 Sqn Mosquito MM733.
YOUNG, Ronald Leicester Flying Officer 1334350/(178786) - + 19/04/1945 No.219 Sqn.
Ron Young completed his training as a night fighter pilot with 54 OTU during the period March-November 1943, and here teamed up with Guy Fazan* as his radar operator. The pair were then posted to 219 Squadron as Sgts in Spring 1944, where they were commissioned on 25 May. On 19 April 1945 their Mosquito was shot down in error by another of the unit's aircraft, flown by a Belgian crew. The Belgians** and Young were all killed. But Fazan, like his pilot now a Flg Off, managed to bale out.

Shores' account doesn't ring true. What caused the death to the two Belgian airmen?

many mysteries, many opinions:
MM733 NF30 219Sqdn Missing from patrol over Scholdt estuary 19 April 45
NT380 NF30 219Sqdn Missing from patrol over Schelde 20 April 45
PETRISSE ALBERT JOSEPH GHISLAIN
United Kingdom Flying Officer (Pilot) Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve 219 Sqdn. Killed19/04/1945 153762
LALOUX MAURICE HENRI JOSEPH
United Kingdom Flight Sergeant (Nav.) Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve 219 Sqdn. Killed19/04/1945 1424951
(In 219 Squadron - Belgian Wings)
-The following month, on 18th April, PETRISSE and his comrade LALOUX takes off from Gilze-Rijen to operate over Northern Germany. The Flak again is the cause of the loss of their Mosquito FK-Z which crashes at Visselhövede killing the crew. After the war, their bodies will be found hurriedly burried in the Wehnsen cemetery (near Soltau).
