This officer came to my interest as the pilot of Sunderland ML766 at Pembroke Dock on 14th November 1944 when it was DBR following a loss of control whilst taxiing on the step.

A check on the MOD roll of honours shows he was killed on 16th September 1952 whilst posted to RAF Driffield.

An Ancestry search has a newspaper cutting showing he was the son of Air Marshal Sir Aubrey Ellwood KCB DSC and that he was killed as a result of a flying accident near Bridlington on the 16th. A farm worker, Mark Harrison, was also killed by flying debris from the aircraft as it crashed.

I cannot find any reference to this crash anywhere else. Can anyone assist with any further details.

Thanks very much in advance

Chris
