    Default 1316792 Charles Henry Pettit (35 Squadron)

    Does anyone have any information regarding the death of 1316792 Charles Henry Pettit, who died on 22nd May 1946?

    I think it may have been through illness or natural causes (nothing in the ORB), but thought it worth making an enquiry on here

    Your usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Pete, Hi,
    You will have to get a copy of the Death Cert (Reg Rochford Vol 4a Page 657) to get the precise, medical, Cause of Death, but Simon has proved it was non-aviation related!
