    A bit more;

    The death of Charles AL Bevan aged 25 is registered at Birmingham; on the same page is Cyril Parkin aged 20 who CWGC confirms as being 637487 AC2 Parkin Cyril aged 20.

    Hi Dave ,

    The F1180s show 1 killed 1 injured.

    It is possible that the AC2 is a delayed death not corrected on the 1180 but for the moment it's a pencil link until someone comes up with a more concrete link.

    Regards
    Ross

    Ross ,

    your first post says 'two fatalities'. Are we still talking about the Dragon?

    Oops.

    Got mixed up with an email that I was answering off board (the reason the reel was on the reader).

    I confirm 2 fatalities on the Dragon.

    Bevan confirmed and AC2 Parkin most probable.

    Sorry about that
    Ross

    Default Crash at Castle Bromich 22.4.1940

    I can confirm that the second airman killed on 22.4.1940 was 637487 AC2 Parkin Cyril. He was my uncle and I have the death certificate.
