    Check his name is the linked RAF casualty list

    http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1943/1943%20-%200728.html?search=Sweeney

    On my smart phone so cant check it confortably.

    I think you will find his name among the Died on Active Service names, hence not related to an aircraft accident. This status would point towards a death from illness or a traffic accident etc.

    It can be airmen killed by propellers on airfields. Check the link first.

    Hi Denis,

    You are quite correct he is listed as died on active service.

    I will look up the death entry to find up the cause.

    Unless anyone here knows where to find this info.

    Thanks Denis.
