    I have had a look on the CWGC register and found that Armitage was with 10 Sqn at the time of his death, though there were no accidents on or even around that date involving 10 Sqn aircraft in BCL 2.

    At that time 10 Sqn were in the process of converting to Halifax Mk.IIs.

    His death may have been a none flying accident.

    I guess someone needs to have a look at the ORB to check.

    David Carl Taylor, 139sqdn Blenheim Z7275 crashed during training on 22/11/41, died next day of his injuries. (BC Losses). Strangely, none of the airmen mentioned are on the list of RAF deaths, all ranks, 1939-48.

    Hi Alan
    The reason they are not listed on the list of RAF Deaths is that their deaths were registered at a UK Registary office local to the place of death.
