    Default Sqdn/Ldr William Carnaby 25 Squadron

    Trying to establish whether 90157 Sqdn/Ldr William Fleming Carnaby was the pilot of 25 Squadron Mosquito HJ918 which broke up and crashed near Chruch Fenton on 5th February 1943.
    That is the date of his death on CWGC and on his gravestone in Newmarket cemetery

    Francis Mason's 25 Sqn history 'Hawks Rising' confirms HJ918 and Carnaby as pilot - Fg Off James Hector Lennox Kemp also killed.
