Posted in 7/41 and out 8/41 to 408Sqn


Flew 4 operations with 49Sqn during August 1941 with Sgt A Rea. The entire crew came from 408Sqn in July 1941 and returned to the same squadron at the end of August 1941.

The crew were:
Sgt A J Rea
Sgt A Hunter
Sgt A Young
Sgt I R Hughes 

Sgt Young was killed on 7th September 1942 and is buried in the Coppull Churchyard Extension.

The Lincoln IBCC website indicates that he was flying with 14 OTU at the time of his death. This could indicate that he completed his tour of operations with 408Sqn.

The circumstances are at present unknown as there is no reference to this loss in any standard reference book.

Sgt A Young (and F/Sgt FT Jowett) were killed by falling from a train carriage on the 7th of September 1942.

The death certificate states that the cause was "laceration of the brain and multiple injuries caused through falling from a railway carriage on the LMS Railway Company".
