    I was looking at a loss mentioned in the 58 OTU ORB on this date, they were expecting delivery of an aircraft (recorded as a Spitfire) on this date and stated it crashed en-route at Hemel Hempstead killing the pilot. The obvious connection is that Veasey was flying the aircraft but there are no Spitfire losses that add up.

    Hello

    Sgt (Pilot) Thomas A. VEASEY - 742268 - the Graves Registration Report Form confirms his unit as 58 O.T.U.

    Regards
