    Default Cpl Albert Edgar WOOLHOUSE, RCAF, R/91111

    Cpl Albert Edgar Woolhouse, R/91111, 404 Sqn RCAF, died 3 Sep 43. I have the CWGC data. What were the circumstances?
    I should add that I'm blundering my way round/through a new computer (Windows 8!!!) and it's a real pain!
    TIA

    Hi Peter

    TSGNO states he was a rigger with 8404 SE and was killed in LZ175 of 404 Sqn which crashed at Ilbster in Caithness.

    Tks Dennis! I had forgotten that. I'm trying to migrate stuff from the old computer to the new computer! Two keyboards and two mouses (or is it mice?) - most confusing!!. Windows 8 doesn't appear to want to let me connect with The Times Archive, and I am currently not having much joy with the LG (where has their WW2 Advanced Search Panel gone?). I also chose to do my mach change at the same time as rafcommands went down!! I thought I'd really caused it all to go Tango Uniform!! Luckily I've managed to convince my Domestic Operational Controller that the Saharan Dust would be bad for my lungs - and the lawn-mower!!

    G'day

    LZ175 was coded with the single call letter 'Y'.

    Cheers...Chris

    G'day Peter

    I went through the ORB's again and the aircraft was coded EE*Y.

    Cheers...Chris
