    Flt Lt Peter E Raw was seconded to Hawker Aircraft as a production test pilot following a successful tour of operations flying Typhoons with 609 Squadron. He was the pilot of Tempest JN747 which was written off in an accident on 20 January 1944, details not known to me. Raw survived and returned to operations but was killed while serving with 183 Squadron on 21 March 1943 (Typhoon MN247).

    Thanks - That clears it all up then - he was NOT Killed in the incident described - I note that it should be 21/03/1944 not 21/03/1943!

    Many Thanks
