    Default Sgt (Pilot) Leslie Luck - 229 Squadron - 4 October 1941

    Sgt (Pilot) Leslie Luck of 229 Squadron is buried at Oshogbo Cemetery, Nigeria with date of death 4 October 1941.

    Trying to establish if he was killed while ferrying a Hurricane from Takoradi to Cairo and en route encountered thick cloud and on descending thru these hit a mountain somewhere between Lagos and Kano, Nigeria.

    Thanks for info.

    Regards,

    Leendert
