    Hello Simon,
    From what is in Henk' List, Loveridge died whilst playing a game of Rugby.

    So if it can be found who were the crew of the earlier a/c crash, it may be that he could be eliminated or maybe he had some injury that eventually took him ?

    Hello Alex
    Firstly, I am new to this, so whether I have replied to you correctly I'm not sure.
    I see that you were investigating the death of Michael Arthur Loveridge. I wondered if you had discovered anything more. The reason being; my first step mother was Jennifer Lowther and Michael was her half brother. Two other half brothers were also killed. So I am on a mission before she dies.
    Any info would be fantastic.

    "Is this death a possible connection to the 652 Sqdn loss on the 1st October, Auster AOP 6, VF482 ?"
    nope as per https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/18047

    But it was VF483 not VF482!
