    Alex,
    The wrong serial is quoted in AIR81/4507. The aircraft involved was N7265.
    I have amended our database accordingly:

    Hi

    SAVAGE - a little amplification - He was home on leave from RAF Topcliffe and went to RAF Driffield to assist after a raid. During this work he received a bang on the head, later complaining of a headache and died in bed.
