    Default Sgt Thomas Antingham Lyke 1380743

    This 58 Squadron RAFVR airman from Monkland, Herts., is on the Runnymede Memorial at Panel 88.

    Can anybody shine a light on what happened to the Coastal Command lad who was 22 when lost on 28 November 1942. I have a vague clue that he may have drowned off the NW coast of Scotland, but I am really flying a kite (child's variety)?

    Thanks Ross

    I must get my compass reorientated. I now have a 'fix' as it were.

    regards

    Do you have the names of the rest of the Whitley crew?
