    Default Local Burials

    Hello All,
    I'm just checking the histories of a couple of my "locals" in Tilehurst, Reading.

    115472 AC2 F Broadhurst, RAFVR, 953 (Balloon) Sqn, +12 Nov 1940, 34, Reg Islington.
    Did we ever decide what the circumstances of his death were? Probably an air-raid?

    143583 Sgt A A Blake, RAFVR, +13 Nov 1942, 19, Reg Ulverston.
    What was his Unit (must have been flying to be a Sgt at 19!), and what were the circumstances?

    TIA
    Peter Davies

    Henley L3322 of 1614 Flight crashed at or near Cark on 11/11/42. There may be a connection. (Cark is in the Ulverston reg. district)
