    Hello ,

    Here some more :

    During a delivery flight for N° 3 Delivery Flight P/O Decloedt Jean , born on may 31 1916 in London crashed in a Spitfire in very tick fog near Lewesden-Hill ( Stoke Abbott / Beaminster/Dorset )
    He was an engineer and served in the Belgian Regiment Aeronatique in 1940 as a NCO pilot and was a candidate as an officer in the reserve. He left Ostend and joined the RAF. For some medical reasons he was not able to join a operational squadron and went to a Delevry Flight.[/I]

    Hi,

    Maurice DELECRAY is the "nom de plume" of Armand BAYARD
