    Hello,

    Re: 119531 F/O (Pilot) Anthony Kingsmill BROOK RAFVR

    29-1-1944
    No.1 Aircraft Depot
    Boomerang A46-170

    Pilot took off from Charleville aerodrome, Queensland, made the usual circuits to gain height, and when the machine was at a height estimated between 700 and 1,000ft, the engine appeared to cut out. Eye-witnesses state the machine dipped and then rolled and eventually crashed at 0740, in a paddock half-a-mile north of the aerodrome. DBF.

    The townspeople of Charleville subscribed to a fund to build a memorial for Tony Brook. They eventually erected a water fountain in his honour.
