    Hi Peter
    A small crumb! his death is registered at Skipton, then considered to be in W Yorkshire, the town is at the Southern end of the Yorkshire Dales about 12-15 mls NW of Bradford

    He is listed as Died on Active Service in Flight Magazine CasComm 564 Feb 28th 1946 publicaton.

    Peter, is there a connection between the men you ask about? Are they from a particular place or something?

    Hi Dennis,

    I've been looking at the RAF casualties buried at Hills Cemetery, Horsham for a friend who is researching the Cemetery. Some I come up with, others I ask the experts on here.

    Following my family tree, I have found out that Charles Eric Dinnage was related to me, and was wondering if your investigation had borne any details? I am new to doing this type of research and was looking out for some tips and advice to find out more.

    Hello Nygel

    based on his death being listed as Died on Active Service, you would be best placed getting his death certificate as it is very unlikely he died in an aviation related event, there is a possibility he had been injured months of years earlier. I'd start with his death certificate in this case.

    regards
