    Default KENNEDY MINARDS, MC, Richard Methuen, Captain 134464

    A local casualty, reputedly killed in an air crash. Middle Wallop museum does not know any more - does anybody know of a possible matching accident on 3rd August 1944?

    KENNEDY MINARDS, MC, Richard Methuen, Captain 134464 495 Bty., 102 (The Pembroke Yeomanry) Medium Regt., Royal Artillery. Died 03.08.1944, aged 26. Son of William Ivey Kennedy Minards and Lilian Vesta Kennedy Minards born Malta. Husband of Pamela Vyvyan Kennedy Minards (nee Richards) of Alresford. B.A.(Hons.), Oxon. Commissioned 08.06.1940. Buried Ropley (St. Peter) Churchyard, Hants.
    Joined 35 AOP course, RAF 21.07.1944 to train as a pilot. (AOP course list)

    Thanks in advance for any help that anybody can offer.
