    Default 206 Squadron losses.

    Can anyone give the cause of death for these two airmen from 206 Squadron who both died on 1 February 1942. The 206 Squadron ORB states no operational flying on that day, so no losses are recorded.

    Regards
    Peter

    Campbell's (RAAF) file hasn't been digitised but it says Hudson C AM604 in the title.
    Fraser (also RAAF) is the same aircraft

    Fraser's casualty file hasn't been digitised but his service file states that he was killed in air operations, Aldergrove at 1130 hrs. So ties in with you have Peter, in the Air Britain file.
