    I think you may have the wrong aircraft for Taylor, Anson 12325 was in service till late 1945, and was broken up for parts in 1953. I can't find any CNS crashes around that date.

    TAYLOR, Bernard William David - LAC - 3006853 - the Canada War Graves Register (Circumstances of Casualty) on ancestry.co.uk states that he was "hit by tailplane while bailing out of Anson Aircraft Mk. V 12 miles south of Minnedosa, Man., at approximately 0005 hours, 6/Apr/45."

    Perhaps not an actual crash...?

    Regards

    7155 Servicing Echelon, supporting No.155 Squadron RAF at Sadaung but no move to Tennant. He drowned in the river at DWEHLA. The SE had arrived by road from Sadaung and the camp ptiched when he ran into the river for a swim. It is thought that he must have got cramp and been sucked under by a shell hole whirlpool.
