    8211 F/L Cyril Hans NISSEN RAAF.

    8211 F/L (Pilot) Cyril Hans NISSEN RAAF, was killed on 4 September, 1947, when No.77 Sqn RAAF Mustang A68-787 (BCOF), overshot on landing at Bofu airfield, Japan. The Mustang overturned and came to rest in a drainage ditch, and unfortunately, F/L Nissen RAAF was drowned as a result.
