    Hi Tim

    Willian is listed as being with 598 Sqn and there don't appear to be any other likely candidates, so he looks the most obvious.

    His death is registered in Stonehaven district, Kincardineshire.

    I take it R A McDonald RCAF was the pilot, he on Runnymede.

    Malcom/Dennis,
    I can find McDonald on CWGC site but there is no mention of Willian or have I been in the pub too late tonight. Interested in where he was finally buried for my records.
    .....OK found him under Willan.

    Best regards,
    Alan.
