    Hi Alistair

    He was killed whilst flying in Blenheim IV, L9458 of No 203 Sqn, after the pilot lost control in cloud and the aircraft dived into the sea near Aden.

    Thanks for your help with this Malcolm, I'm thinking the others on board were

    539168 William Reay BLACKBURN
    84995 Ronald Owen STOCK GIVAN

    Just basing that on thr date and unit.

    Regards

    Alistair
