    Default 100 Squadron Fawn Loss 1925

    Morning all,

    Slightly outside the normal remit of this board, but, whilst searching through some old posts a couple of days ago, i found this one detailing two 100 Squadron casualties in 1925: -

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4417

    This was a completely new 100 Sqn loss for me, and is not recorded anywhere in the ORB. As such, the only gen I have on this loss is that contained in the above thread. So, my question, can anyone point me in the direction of where i might find a bit more? Will there be a Court of Enquiry report anywhere, or any other kind of crash investigation report? Do the crash cards at Hendon go as far back as 1925? How will i go about finding out where the two casualties are buried?

    Thanks in advance for any pointers anyone can give me :)

    Greg,

    It doesn't add to the sum of knowledge but the accident did receive a very brief mention in The Times on 27 May, confirming it was a 100 Sqn aeroplane.

    Edit: Eve was the second son of Mr and Mrs Harold Eve of South Nutfield (The Times - Deaths)
