He died in a road accident at Desford, NOT in a flying accident
For the benefit of others, here's the entry in the 1942 thread:
The inquest into his death was reported in the Leicester Evening Mail, October 13th 1942. His motorcycle collided with an RAF van, and he died in hospital the next day from his injuries. The inquest heard that he cut a corner and was on the wrong side of the road when he collided with the van. A verdict of Accidental death was recorded by the Coroner.
