Royal Air Force Pilot Officer John H. G. Moriarty, of Mumbles, Swansea, Glamgoran, Wales, was among a number of RAF fliers sent to the United States during World War II to train in American fighter aircraft. He, along with fellow pilot officers Fred Hodge, John R. Latour-Eppy, and James A. Paterson, perished during a routine training flight out of Mather Air Force Base in Sacramento, California. An investigation concluded that the fatal crash was caused when the wings of the two AT-6 advanced single engine training planes they were flying collided. They were buried in flight formation and with full military honors, the British government providing the markers as well as British soil to bury the officers in. He was the son of John Hickson and Margaret Moriarty.
