    Default Sgt/FO William Edward Peet VR-1246393/156101

    Hello all,
    The above Spitfire/Mustang pilot trained in the US during 1941-2. Could this be the Arnold Scheme? Does anyone have any details of his American training and possible dates.
    Sadly he was killed in a training accident with 65 sqn in Mustang III, FZ134 on 3-4-44.
    Any help would please would be so useful.
    Roy
