    Hi Andy
    Only thing I can add is that his death is registered at Bathavon which, I think , covers the area between Bath and Bristol and it wasn't registered until the 4th Qtr of 1940. This suggests that whatever brought about his death required some investigation that delayed the registration(say by a Coroner) but recorded the death with the correct date. It could be that it took time to recover and identify his remains and this caused the delay
    Regards

    Andy,

    Following website has it that he was killed in a flying accident and adds "pilot of an Avro Anson": http://www.unithistories.com/officers/RAFVR_officers_C01.html

    Fiorella, welcome to the forum! If we can help - we will!
    Not a lot more known than you already know. I think, though, that his Widow may have remarried, so that if you want to chase up that avenue then it might be quite difficult. Additionally, the RAFVR Officers site gives his wife's Maiden Surname as 'Curits'. I can not find a Curits surname. It is, more likely, to be Curtis. Sorry not to be of more help!
