    Default Accident on the 27th April 1945

    Hi,

    I have a diary extract from a chap on 218 squadron where it records the death of seven NCO's killed in an accident. No other pointers, any ideas ?

    TIA

    Hi Mojmir,

    Not sure why a 218 airman would record or know about a 228 Squadron fatality. What was the cause of death any idea ?

    Thanks for your help.
