    Default AUS402381 Sgt M H Morgan RAAF + 24-10-1941

    Hello,

    AUS402381 Sgt Mervyn Henry MORGAN RAAF, was killed on 24-10-1941. The location given on his undigitised A705, is Lyneham. Also mentioned in the Item Notes is, 656689 LAC (Pilot U/T) Edward James Perry TAPPER RAFVR. Tapper, along with Morgan, is buried in Lyneham (St.Michael) Churchyard.

    Were they involved in the loss of Oxford II N4730 of 14 SFTS, which crashed at night, taking off from Lyneham?

    Thanks,

    Col.

    Col,
    I can only confirm that Morgan was with 14 SFTS at the time of death.
