    Hello

    EMERY was a groundcrew with No. 226 Squadron, radio electrician. He died during a surgical operation at No. 1 Medical Receiving Station, at Prosnes. He was initially buried in Epernay, and moved to Terlincthun in July 1964.

    " Second to None" has on pages 58/59 the story of the squadrons first casualty in France.
    A very sad story and bazar details of his burial.

    Alex, I too am interested in the gist of the Sankey story as he is one of the last unknowns from 1939 Thanks Paul
