    POTTS, 928001 - DOAS (Casualty Communiqué Nº 402, Flight Magazine July 13th 1944), death registered Durham Central

    SPENCER, 1685428 was the sole occupant of Harvard II 2756 of 2 S.F.T.S. which crashed on the South shore of Lake Deschenes on the Ottawa River. The aircraft fell into a sideslip during a steep turn on a low level bombing exercise. It is thought the pilot blacked out. Info from Jerry Vernon in Canada.

    Hi Jon

    Could the UK hospitals be the other way round as his death is registered in Wellingborough not Aylesbury?

    Potentially Malcolm. If that's what the GRO say, I probably wrote it down the wrong way around at the time, what you say makes total sense
