    Default 54089 Reginald Arthur Breeze

    Hi All

    The above was killed on 28 Jan 1945 whilst serving with No 151 RSU, does anyone know the cause?

    All the best

    Hi Malcolm,

    Breeze's unit was No.151 Repair Unit (AIRCRAFT), not No.151 RSU which was allocated but not taken up. Breeze was ex-BoB. He is shown in Flight as KOAS.

    Hello,

    I posted the same request a while ago :

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?2528-Reginald-Arthur-BREEZE-died-28-january-1945

    The ORB of No. 151 RU (A) doesn't mention his death at all, which was rather disappointing, though his presence in the unit was confirmed on one page.

    Since then, I contacted AHB. They replied that he lost his life in a flying accident in Spitfire IX PL324, on 28th January 1945, at approximately 11:50 hours, at Guines.

    This Spitfire was repaired, hence the fatality doesn't show in the form 78 and in "Spitfire the History" and his internet variants.

    I found confirmation of the crash in a gendarmerie report in Guines.

    Hi Col and Joss

    Col - My fault with the unit (finger trouble) I meant 151 RU(A)

    Joss - Thanks for the additional details.
