    Default D C Peacock

    Fligth Magazine dated December 24th 1942, in Air Ministry Casualty Communique No. 184

    Lists W/O D. C. Peacock as Died on Active Service.

    I beleive his death is registered in Scotland, I've not been able to narrow down the district. There is one Denis Charles Peacock age 21 registered in Soctland in 1942. So, perhaps he was killed in an accident while stationed in Scotland.


    His name is not on the Q3 or Q4 death registers for England and Wales.

    He may not have died in a crash or service related inccident in that case

    He does appear in a photograph that was taken in his training days: possibly at 5 OTU. Apart from that I know he is buried in Stranton Cemetery, Hartlepool. He also served on 96 Squadron. On February 1st, 1941 he crashed Hurricane P 8813 on landing at Cranage while with 96 Squadron.

    Best Wishes.

    Peacock died at Kingseat Naval hospital of 'a gunshot wound to brain, cerebral compression', no mention of the circumstances.
