    Default S/Ld Begg, 77 Sqd 11-11-1939 Whitley

    Hello All,

    For a relative I am trying to find as much info as possible on the crash of S/Ldr James Begg, who crashed in France on the 11th Nov 1939, 77 Sqd. I have the info from Chorley, just wondered if anyone has any photos of the grave, or more info on the crash (suspect he flew into terrain)....

    Kind Regards,

    Chris
