    Default RAF Clyffe Pypard, 3 pilots in local churchyard

    Does anyone have any information on the three pilots buried in the local churchyard of Clyffe Pypard?, they were stationed at the local airfield which housed 29 EFTS during WW2.

    They are:

    412296, Flying Officer A.G. Williams, RNZAF, 2.3.43

    115395, Flying Officer A G Moss, RAF, (Flying Instructor) 2.3.43

    Presumably the two above airmen were in the same accident.

    47721 Pilot Officer P J Graves, RAF, 30.9.42

    Many Thanks.
