    Could anyone help me please on this Canadian pilot.
    P/O Donald Young Claxton RCAF, J15129, of Toronto. Joined 118 sqn 'A' Flt as a Sgt in late summer, 1941.
    Claimed 1 Me109F des. on 118sqn on 15-10-41 on Ramrod 1 near Le Havre.
    On 25-4-42 P/O Claxton was MIA on 118 sqn age 23. He was shot down in Spitfire Vb, BL279 on Circus 4 off The Needles by JG 2.

    Nothing on the pilot but correct serial was BL297 in lieu of BL279.
