    Hi All

    The above was killed on 10 July 1944, possibly at RAF Elvington, does anyone know of the circumstances?

    All the best

    Fox was Navigator for P/O Eaton and they were detailed for a marking operation to Nucourt but developed a coolant leak taking off. P/O Eaton taxied towards the reserve aircraft but P/O Fox jumped out before the engines had stopped and walked into the propellor. He died within 10 minutes. - From the 105 ORB.
