    Default 523177 McColl, Corporal Edward B. Killed 12 August 1940 at RAF Hawkinge

    Hi guys

    The above was killed in an air raid on 12 August 1940.

    I have a note that he may have been killed by friendly fire.

    Has anyone information, please?

    Keep safe
    Brian

    Brian,

    McColl's service number was 523177, not 523117. Correct it Mate, and I will delete this!

    KILLED ON ACTIVE SERVICE (WHILE ENGAGED ON NON-OPERATIONAL FLYING DUTIES OR ON THE GROUND THROUGH ENEMY ACTION). McColl, Cpl. E. B.

    The Times. Saturday, August 31, 1940. p.9. (Issue 48700)

    Brian,

    I can only delete my posting, not yours. The moderators would need to alter the title, and your good self, the message.

    Don't worry about it, it's of no great consequence. The hardest part is thinking up new excuses as to why we do these things at all!
