    Steve,

    RAF Overseas War Deaths 1939-1948 lists him as being aboard the Lancastria sunk of St Naziare 17-6-1940 I believe the highest loss of British military personnel at sea during WW2. The internet contains much information on the Lancastria. I believe around 200 RAF men perished many from 73 and 98 Squadrons.

    The service number 544901 indicates an enlistment around September/October 1937
