    Hello,

    EGYPT - IMPEY, PARSONS & SCOTT.

    Possibly aboard No.1675 HCU Liberator VI KG824, which caught fire in the air and blew up 4m NE of Abu Sueir, on 22-2-1945.

    Others might be able to add more.

    A little further info on COLLIE 520110 - the Statutory Deaths entry on Scotland's People didn't have a cause of death, but there's a note in the margin referring to an entry in the Register of Corrected Entries. A quick e-mail to Scotland's People led me to his entry in the RCE, which states that he died of a fractured skull, the result of a road traffic accident.

    Regards
