    Default LAC Lucas Scholl Engberts, KIFA EAOS Eastbourne

    Dear all,

    does anyone know the circumstances of the death of the Dutch (and not British subject)LAC Lucas Scholl Engberts, (RAFVR 1555000) who was born in Olilla in Finnland on July 29 1915. Scholl Engberts died in the Princess Alice Hospital on April 30 1942. At that moment he was a observer pupil of No 1 EAOS at Eastbourne.
    According to some sources he died due to injuries of an aircraft crash at April 16 1942. My question: does anyone more about a flying accident on this date? and was Scholl Engberts in this aircraft? Any details are very welcome.

    Yours sincerely,

    Erwin van Loo

    Dave,
    I've probably involved in a motor cycle accident and died of pneumococcal meningitis.
    Could this be correct ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Erwin,

    The motorcycle accident is a hypothesis. The subject has been discussed on this forum before, and a newspaper article mentioning - the cause of - this loss has not been found. A connection with an aircraft accident has not been made. Meningitis as a cause of death for a person so young would quite possibly come after severe head trauma, or concussion.

    Regards,

    Rob
