My father had a step brother who flew out of RAF Downham Market during the war, who was sadly killed. Dad has decided to send off to see if he is eligible to recieve his war medal and it got me thinking it would ne nice if I could get some more information about his time at the air base, the pane he flew in, its crew and their missions and a little more information on how he died.
We are told he was killed in an accident when a returning plance crashed into him, killing him and many more on the ground.
Albert Ronald Denzy
Service number 1333519
Position: Wireless operator
Based: Downham Market
Died 14/05/43 aged 20
I have manged to get hold of a copy of an accident card which I am told is the only one listed on that day, which seems to state BF480 made a difficult landing and crashed into the watch office killing two on board with one injured, however there is no mention of fatlities on the ground other than the word '3rd Party' which i assume means there were casulaties.
Any information about the actual event or how I can build a picture of his life at the base would be welcome
