    The subject airman was killed, aged 22, in Q1 1944 in the middle of the Fens of East Anglia. His death is Registered at East Elloe (7a 389). The name looks Polish? How, where, and why, did he come to die. Looks like a job for our Polish experts? No hurry! What we have not known for near 70 years is not going to change in the next week or so!

    Peter, Zbigniew Czaplicki (service no 704863) was killed in active service on 16 May 1944 during his pilot training in 16 (Polish) Service Flying Training School. While performing one of his manoeuvres (a corkscrew) in the air he lost his control over the aircraft (Miles Master II no DK857) and crashed onto the ground.

    Regards,
    Gregory
