    Hello

    A little more on the following:

    UK
    BUCKLEY, Edward - Sgt - 637061 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at the Sanatorium, Knightwick, Worcs.

    DICKSON, Alexander - AC1c - 1303043 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website has an Alexander Dickson, aged 26, which I assume is him (there are two others on the register, aged 78 and 83). It records that he died at 1.30 p.m. at the County Hospital, Perth, due to pulmonary TB.

    STEPHENS, Maurice Hugh - Lt/CDR(A) - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at the Hospital, Hurst Road, Horsham.

    Regards

    Simon

    Hello,
    Too late to edit my first post above.
    So here is an additional fatal crash for this day.

    Lockheed Super Electra - CF-TCJ/1473.
    There were two occupants killed.
    Were they civilian aircrew or RCAF ?
    Who were they ?
    Thanks

The pilot lost control of the aircraft and lost height, hit trees and crashed in flames in a wooded area located at Turtle Creek, southwest of Moncton Airport. The aircraft was destroyed and both occupants were killed.
