    Default F/O L Ereminsky, RAF

    Hi Forumites:

    A few years ago there was a posting on this site regarding the above named officer. He was a Flight Commander in 56 Sqn, when unfortunately he crashed and was killed in a flying accident on 17th June, 1940.
    The aircraft, Hurricane P2882, crashed near West Horsley, Surrey; does anybody know exactly where the aircraft came down?

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Andy Wis

    For some reason, the CWGC listed Ereminsky as being with 151 Sqn at the time of his death: https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/fi...insky,-leonid/
    Our database reflects this: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=P2882

    The TNA file: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ls/r/C14502562 confirms name and aircraft serial P2882.
    In file AIR27-528-12 (56 Sqn Record of Events Jun 1940), downloaded from: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ils/r/D8451867
    entry is on Page 33, take off time 0810 "a/c crashed near Leatherhead"
    In file AIR27-528-11 (56 Sqn Summary of Events Jun 1940), downloaded from: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ils/r/D8451866
    entry is on Page 4, bottom entry "F/O Ereminsky crashed in flames".

    The CWGC has accepted a correction, and their new entry showing his unit as 56 Sqn will be online in a day or so.
    Can our database also be amended please?
