    Hi Henk,

    F1180 records Crash of Havoc BJ486 at West Malling

    2 killed, Pilot listed as F/O Curtice

    So list both the following as casualties on the aircraft
    F/O Edward G. CURTICE - 79203 (death registered and burial place both Maidstone - death by natural causes ?), and
    Sgt (Obs) Alex SMALLEY - 961230.

    Regards
    Ross

    Picking up this old thread, can anyone help with linking AC1 Ronald A.J. BURDEN - 1266380 (DOAS) with any the propsed aircraft losses for this day?

    Thanks and regards

    Hi Bob

    As he was DOAS it is unlikely he was involved in an aircraft related accident, more likely a non-related aircraft accident or natural causes. His death is registered in Aylesbury so he possibly died in the RAF Hospital, Halton.
