    From 'Flight Global' dated 20 April 1944

    P/O. J R R. Boyer RCAF. Killed On Active Service.

    'Killed On Active Service' means that the individual died as a result of an accident or something similar whilst engaged on operational duties. Thus, if a person was killed on a training sortie, or a flight not engaged in operations against the enemy that would be classed as Killed On Active service .
