    Henk,

    Can't help with unit, Passage is "dead from natural causes" in RCAF casualty list no. 170 issued 25 January 1941.

    Thanks Ken. Most important for me is "died of natural causes" what means no longer research for an aircraft serial.

    Henk.

    There was an RAF Manning Depot at Moncton, that was usually the first and last stop for RAF members in Canada.
