    Hello

    No. 218 Squadron was at the time based at Auberives-sur-Suippe. Battle K8356 crashed near the aerodrome around 2:10 PM during a dive bombing training flight. Port wing broke in flight. The crew was initially buried in Epernay cemetery, and moved to Terlincthun in July 1964. PIKE's brother lost his life on 7 April 1941, flying with No. 7 Squadron.
