    Default Leading Aircraftman Frederick Stanley YATES 1116152

    Hi,

    In trouble again.

    Can anyone help with

    Leading Aircraftman Frederick Stanley YATES 1116152
    Died on Friday 15 June 1945

    BDM records his death in Swanage, Dorset and he is buried in Haycombe Cemetery, Bath in Plot 39. Section H. Row E. Grave 262.

    The local obits record death was due to 'a flying accident'.

    I cannot trace this from the references I have, can anyone assist, please,

    Regards,

    Graeme

    Colin Cummings lists this in The Price of Peace as
    Liberator JT985 of No.232 Sqn which crashed near Swanage.

    Hi Ross,

    Cannot thanks you enough, can find it with Google and s/n now !!

    Incidentally, from Google, the loss appears 'interesting' inasmuch as a DFC was found in the wreckage see http://medalsofengland.com/medals.php?id=79&medalid=319

    Once again, many thanks,

    Graeme

    Crew were all Canadian and as far as I know nobody awarded the DFC. Passeners killed were all Cpls and LACs.
    Regards,
