    Hello

    UK
    TRACY, Anthony Peter Hanbury - Lt(A) - 771 Sqn - his death was reported in a few newspapers at the time. The Nottingham Journal of December 13th 1947 reported:

    A search is being made for the pilot (Lt. A. Anthony Tracy, R.N.) of a naval Seafire aircraft from Lee-on-Solent (Hants.) which crashed yesterday into the sea off Calshot in the Solent and sank.

    Regards
