    Presumably all this already known
    RAF Commands:
    Lysander IIIA - V9798 - 1488 Flt. - AUS402840 F/Sgt (Pilot) Arthur Gordon Herbert ARNOT RAAF.
    1253702 LAC Michael John SUMMERS RAFVR, also killed in this accident.
    No. 1488 (Target Towing) Gunnery Training Flight RAF
    He is not on the RAF GRO register so it may be that his family buried him themselves and all contact with CWGC was lost.
    A Michael J Summers born in Bristol district, Q1 1920, so possibly born late 1919.
    1939 Register has a Michael John Summers born 18 April 1922 at 14 South Way, Harrow with parents John E Summers and Ethel.
