Birth: unknown
Death: Sep. 19, 1942

Flight Sergeant

Royal Australian Air Force

Halifax DT 481 based at RAF Breighton was detailed on 19 September 1942 to carry out an air firing exercise, but to make a call first to the drome at RAF Binbrook. The aircraft overshot the drome on its first approach, and when it overshot again on the second approach, smoke was pouring from the starboard outer engine which had failed and caught fire. At 1030 hours while making a gentle turn to the left at 800 feet the aircraft stalled, then spun and crashed. All the crew on board were killed.
