    Default 2nd Lt Alfred Edgar Portlock, KIFA 6th December 1917

    Hello all, trying to establish the aircraft in which Portlock was killed in 1917. His death is registered at Whitchurch, Shropshire, so I would assume it to be a Tern Hill accident, but need confirmation. Any suggestions?

    Couldn't find him in 'Flight'.

    Cheers,

    Tom
