    Hi Henk

    I have Brown as a Fitter II, being killed in a (ground) accident.

    I have Inglis as being killed on 24 Jun (as per CWGC) and a possibly for Beaufighter VI, EL225 of No 2 TTU, which crashed on landing at Castle Kennedy.

    Here is the entry from the No.59 OTU ORB for the June 24th 1943, No.657490 Sgt Inglis, T. (Pilot) killed in flying accident at Witches Knowe, Berwick. You are almost certainly looking for a Hurricane.
