    Hi Philip

    As Tony guessed, he was killed whilst flying in Hudson V, AM687 of No 1 (C) OTU, which crashed north of the Mull of Galloway. He is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    The rest of the crew were: -

    BROWN, WILLIAM SYDNEY (J/5915) RCAF - age 23 Plt Off
    ROLFE, ARTHUR WILLIAM (1014572) RAFVR - age 26 Sgt
    WATT, JAMES HUGH (J/6839) RCAF - age 27 Plt Off

    Thank you brilliant info (how do you do it ) have been wondering for quite a while what happened but believe theres quite a few hudsons in the sea over there,wish I had found you earlier so I could have told my father ( royal marine)
    but he died a few years ago but 2 of his sisters are still going and will be interested in the info thank you very much.
