    Default Sgt M.H.H D'Avigdon

    A Hurricane V6742 crashed at Finchinfield Essex in April 1941. This chap was the pilot. Did he bale out and lose his life to a parachute malfunction, or was he actuall killed in the crash.
    Another one to put my files straight!

    Denis,
    No info whether he baled or was killed in the crash. BTW: CWGC has his name as Michael Henry Haggard DAVIGDOR; his death was registered at Braintree, Essex.
    Regards,
    Henk.
