    Default Angus Marcell Wood 55 OTU

    I'm looking for any information please regarding ANGUS MARCELL WOOD, Sgt.Pilot 1337000 who was killed on 30 October 1942 while based at 55 OTU, RAF Annan. His death was registered at Penrith, Cumberland.

    It seems he was a constable with Portsmouth City Police when he joined up but I'm not sure where he was born.

    I'm guessing he would have been flying a Hurricane but............

    Many thanks
    Ken

    Thank you for that extra detail John - but each step just a month apart. Sad.
