    Default Spitfire AA790 15 December 1944 Pilot?

    Air-Britain AA-AZ Serials says this Sptifire PR.IV of 8(C) OTU, Dyce, was written off in a f/l at Westburn Farm, Dunning, Perthshire, on 15 December 1944; this info is missing from the Morgan & Shacklady entry (p245) which however refers to the a/c being Recat E on 1-1-45. Can anyone please confirm the pilot's name?
