    GILMOUR, Kenneth McLeod - Scotland's People Register of Deaths states that he died at Dr. Gray's Hospital, Elgin at 00.30 a.m, due to a severe laceration of the brain, the result of a fractured skull which he had suffered in a road accident.

    Dear Alex,

    From AIR 27/1549, 263 Sqn ORB: July 1945 F540

    R.16 Hildesheim, Germany
    5th
    This afternoon 12 aircraft did formation flying as a practice for the fly past at Brussles (sic). Two
    air tests were also carried out. Five new pilots joined the Squadron today, namely, F/Lt.
    R.D.Taylor, F/O. W.Recile, W/O. F.Aspinall, Sgt. J.D.Mercer and Sgt. G.W.Smith.
    A tragic accident occurred in the evening when F/O. J.A.Smith was fatally injured in an M.T.
    accident. "Smithy's" death was a sad blow to the Squadron.


    8th
    The aircraft returned safely to base today. F/O.Smith's funeral took place today at the
    military cemetery at Celle.


    Regards,

    Jeff
