    Default Mosquito FBV1 LR269 613 Sqn 11.12.1943

    Does anybody have information on this Mosquito. I believe it crashed on a bombing excersise near Andover, Hampshire. Any information (pilots etc) would be a great help. Many thanks

    If you pop the date and squadron number into Geoff Sullivans search engine for the CWGC one gets:

    F/O Geoffery A Rolph 48639 (Pilot)
    Sgt John V Newton 1451836 (Nav/Bomber)

    Both are buried in England in their local cemeteries.

    Both deaths are registered in the Kingsclere and Whitchurch District of Hampshire.
