    Aircraftman 2nd Class Robert McQUADE (623838) 1940-01-01 2 Sqdn France Beuvry Communal Cemetery Exten

    See http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...01-1940-France

    I wonder if the other airman is William Sankey

    Aircraftman 2nd Class William SANKEY (639683) 1939-11-07 2 Sqdn France Gezaincourt Communal Cemetery

    McQuade DIED ON ACTIVE SERVICE

    If anyone was "In one case, an airman was "killed in the flames when a petrol lamp exploded"."

    I would have expected "Killed on Active Service" - Though Curtis was DoAS
