I am told that some time between November 43 and March 45 there was a Spitfire crash at Boscombe Down in which the pilot, formerly with the RAF's Schneider Trophy High Speed Flight, was killed. It is said he was visiting either D'Arcy Greig or Boothman, fellow Schneider Trophy pilots who were successively commandants of the A&AEE, and crashed making a low pass over the field after enjoying a lunch with one these two.

Can anyone identify the pilot?
