    Default Sqn Ldr Maurice Michael FREEHILL DFC, 58 (B) Sqn, 1937-1939

    I'm trying to establish a possible cause of death for this pilot.

    Freehill was posted to 58 (B) Sqn at Boscombe Down as a Sqn Ldr on 22 Apr 37, but is next recorded as having died at York Military Hospital on 3 Feb 39, aged 40.

    Does anyone have the ORB for 58 Sqn, in the hope it might indicate the cause? e.g. road accident, flying accident, illness, etc.

    Thanks

    I am just working my way through a spreadsheet produced by the Linton-On-Ouse Memorial Room and this shows that he died of Broncopneumonia, York Military Hospital.

    The source is quoted as "Slightly Below the Glide Path: RAF Linton-on-Ouse IV"

    Regards
