    Default F/O Roy Norman Cooper 188171 - Uganda - DoD 28/10/1945

    F/O Roy Norman Cooper, RAFVR, was killed on 28/10/1945 in Uganda, now buried at Jinja War Cemetery.
    I understand he was with the RAF Anti-Locust Flight (Middle East) in Kenya. This small unit flew some Ansons, I gathered.

    Looking for the circumstances of F/O Cooper's death. Airplane accident?

    All info welcome, thanks.

    Regards,

    I had read indeed that a or some Albacores were with this Flight on the FAA website.
