    Two registrations in Buckrose in as many days, possible connection to each other. The main airfield in this district was Driffield. But it includes Bridlington and most of that coast.

    Henk, LAC Young died along with AC Frank Dwyer (of Scarborough) at a "North East Aerodrome" when they were gassed in a dugout by carbon monoxide fumes generated by an improvised coke stove they were using to heat the dug out.

    Young was a Driffield lad. Both were RAF Reg.

    I also concur with Alan, the most likely location is Driffield airfield.

    Source is a great little book privately published and taken from extracts of the Driffield newspapers for the War-years. Published by "Driffield and Wolds Geneaolgy" and credit probably due to D Petch. No ISBN shown.

    regards Rich
