    Default Graham Bruce Coad 416655 28/05/1943

    I feel sure that I have seen this chaps name on here before and that we had this all resolved but I am sure this will be a simple query for many of you anyhow.

    I have him as Beaufighter II 2283. But have no letter for the serial. Does any of you kind chaps have the letter I am missing. I feel sure I have it on record somewhere but do not have access at the moment.

    Also was there another crew member aboard this aircraft.

    Have you checked the Australian national archives record search database?

    Hi Dennis

    Yes I went through the 80 odd pages again tonight to try and find out again but nothing.

    Just referred to as Beaufighter II 2283.

    There was one very smudged entry which looked like B2283.

    I think I may have to consult my Beaufighter crash log book but I dont have access at the moment.

    Just moved flat.

    Hi,

    Flt Sgt Graham Bruce Coad
    He was killed on 28th May 1943.
    Beaufighter 11F R2283 132 OTU,

    His aircraft dived into the ground and was destroyed by fire, after an engine cut on overshoot, at RAF Drem.

    There are other Australians buried in the Haddington Cem.

    Thanks for that.

    I am researching all of the East Lothian CWGC listed airman and women including FAA etc.

    Full details will eventually be released.
