    Hi Jim,

    Proctor LZ595, of 4 Radio School, Madley which crashed at Croesau Bach, Mynydd Myfyr, near Oswestry. I paid for his casualty file to be digitized a while back so you will find it on the Australian archives records search. You'll also find a description of the accident here:

    Cheers, Tom

    Thanks for the reply Tom.

    Strange then is he buried in Northumberland? I will look in to him further and post back if I get any results.

    Regards,

    Hi Tom,

    Having looked at his service records I can now see that his uncle was from Blyth!
