    Default Sergeant Ian Robert Mackintosh (RAFVR 1253249) + KIA 24 July 1941

    Good night gentlemen!
    Again, any information related to the above airman, Sergeant Ian Robert Mackintosh (RAFVR 1253249), killed on the 24th July 1941 (probably on training) and buried on Long Lawford (St. John's Chapel) will be of most valuable help.
    Which Squadron, or OTU was he flying with? Any details of crew or aircraft identification available?
    MANY thanks in advance for any kind of help (so far I found nothing about him).
    Yours
    Adriano Baumgartner

    Ross has clearly spelt out over and over how to access the old threads on a sticky note on the top of each index page of the forum:

    None of us have advanced search features but we all have google.
