    Default Sgt Charles Privett

    Hi All,

    Looking for any information regarding Sgt Charles William Privett 1194381

    I have the CWGC information which states he was RAFVR, he was a Wop/Ag and he died on 23rd Huly 1943 aged 20.

    Particularly looking for how he was killed, unit at time of death, aircraft type he was in when killed.

    Regards,
    Simon

    Check where his death was registered:

    he died in Bodmin district, on same page fo register are:

    Hall Basil P 22 Bodmin 5c 59
    Kestell Florian M 56 Bodmin 5c 59
    Privett Charles W 20 Bodmin 5c 59
    Tribbeck Arthur E 30 Bodmin 5c 59
    Wright Arthur T 31 Bodmin 5c 59


    Thats Volume 5c page 59 of the register for that year, thrid quarterof the year.

    Check the younger aged men on CWGC, they show up.

    Then google RAF Privett Tribbeck 1943
    and you get
