    If anyone has any details, particularly any crash investigation report on the circumstances and its exact location please could you help? Sgt Dermot Edgar died when his aircraft broke up in the air.
    The Sandstone Ridge Trust Can You Help?, posted the following on 6 April. Knowing my fellow forum members, I feel someone has the information to help. Thanks.

    View the casualty file at The National Archives - mainly personnel but will also contain any indication that an Inquiry took place.

    Sergeant D D S Edgar; killed; aircraft accident, Broxton, Spitfire X4159, 7 Operational... | The National Archives

    Your title gives the wrong aircraft serial but the attachment references the correct X4159.

    This does have an AiB report at the TNA
    Type: Spitfire 1 (X-4159). Location: Tattenhall, Cheshire. Report No: W868. | The National Archives

    Attached is the reference from the Unit ORB
