    Hi

    From Aces High volume 2.....................Posted to 100 Group and in order to do this attended 51 OTU for bomber conversion. During this time he flew some anti diver/ V 1 operations unofficially in 85 squadron Mosquitos, the last being on 10/11 August 1944. Killed in take off accident in Mosquito on 13 August.

    However, version 2 from Brian Cull's Diver! Diver!...................borrowed Mosquito XVII MM632 VY-E from 85 Sqn and destroyed a V-1 at 0440 on 13th.. He and his nav Flt Lt Walter Weir failed to return.

    regards Peter
