    Hello Geoff
    thought the attached might be of interest

    5th July 1939
    From Halton (St Michael) Buckinghamshire

    Royal Air Force Officers 1939-1945 -- F

    regards

    I came across another one who was a youngster in training and died three weeks before war was declared. Sorry no cigar!

    I would appreciate a photo of him and his crew and the churchyard if anyone is ever close by. Details not in the CWGC database of course.

    CRANFIELD (SS. PETER AND PAUL) CHURCHYARD

    From this interesting site on Turvey crashes
    Aircraft Crashes Around Turvey 1939-1945

    Just before mid-day on Friday 11thAugust 1939 local farmer Geoff Payne was walking up the track towards Bagden Farm to mow grass when suddenly a low flying aeroplane came over the brow of the hill in front of him and clipped the top of the prominent electricity pylon. There was an explosion and, trailing flames, the aircraft lost height and crashed to the ground 200 yards beyond, next to the buildings of Northey Farm. Exactly three weeks later Germany would invade Poland and precipitate the start of World War Two, and this was the first of a number of flying accidents that happened close to Turvey in the six years of war.
    Fairey Battle K9328 of 218 Squadron based at Boscombe Down in Wiltshire was taking part in a practice low level raid on the last day of ‘home defence exercises’ begun on the 8th August when it crashed. Its pilot, 21 year old Australian Flying Officer William Kinane, and observer, Sgt. Peter Allan, were killed instantly. The third member of the crew, wireless operator Aircraftman 1st Class Ivor Roberts, was badly burned and critically injured. He died at RAF Cranfield's sick quarters two days later.
