    Kaitiaki,
    Yr man's Death was Registered at Cirencester in Q3 1942 (Ref Vol 6a Entry 495).

    Seems likely, with that Svc Number, he Enlisted between Sep 1939 and Apr 1940 at Cardington (probably nearer Apr 40 than Sep 39). His Service Record should give you all the details - and his Death Cert the cause of Death. Apply to Cranwell - unless anyone has prior info on his service.

    On this page of 1942 Flight magazine his name is listed as Died on Active Service:
    http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1942/1942%20-%201822.html?search=B.%20V.%20Shaw

    This listing is normally associated with a death from natural causes, such as illness, an accident say on a bike in blackout, hit by a car etc. In some cases it includes being hit by aircraft propeller.

    His death is registered in Cirenchester registration district, from freebmd.org.uk

    That is in Gloster ?, he is buried in Essex. I htink his death certificate will iekly answer your questions, not looking like it was an aircraft crash for example.
