    Hello,

    Re: 19-1-1934 - LAND & BARKER. This is a mistake. LAND & BARKER, were actually killed on 19-1-1935, qv.

    Thanks for the find Jagan!

    I think the photographer was a "T Fuller" looks like he was in NWF/Iraq and Aden at least

    Can anyone ID him

    PERRY-KEENE, Thomas Henry, F/L - Died 21 or 27 July 1934.

    Fairey IIIF, S1860 of RAF Hal Far Station Flt on 17 Jul 1934. Thomas Henry PERRY-KEENE

    News reports confirm aeroplane crashed Malta Tuesday 17th July 1934. Perry-Keene Died Saturday 21st July 1934 (not 27th July)

    Passenger "L D Tite" was actually Leslie Charles Tite 509736 - as per Monday 23 July 1934 , Western Daily Press , Bristol, England (and also I cannot find an RAF Airman of period of LD Tite)
