    Dixey went missing while on a navigation exercise in Hudson s/n FK468 from No. 31 O.T.U., R.A.F. Station, Debert, Nova Scotia on the 15th of May, 1943.

    I will post full details tonight when I get home.

    Cheers...Chris

    Hi Steve,

    http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nbpennfi/penn8b1RollOfHonour_No31OTU_TrainingCasualties.htm

    Hudson FK468 failed to return from a navigation exercise.

    Sgt Dixey was the pilot. Three others, Horsley, Carter and McDowell all RCAF.

    Regards,

    Dave
