    Default F/L William Edwin 'Ted' Kopp, Canada

    Hello to all,
    This question is aimed at our Canadian experts.
    Ted Copp was from Toronto and joined the RAFVR as Sgt VR-919942 later to be VR-118420.as a F/O. He did his initial training with Hamilton Aero Club before coming to the UK. He flew with 266sqn before going to Malta with 46sqn and 126sqn. He was tour expired and repatriated to Canada in May 42. He later joined 1 OTU as a F/I at Bagotville, Quebec on Harvards, On 4th November, 42 he was KIFA possibly with I OTU. Can anyone please tell me of the circumstances of this fatal accident.
    He was buried at Mount Pleasent, cemetery, Toronto.
    With thanks, Roy
