Have seen that he was involved in a crash with a Lancaster that killed both crews. Interested as to what he had done from enlisting in 1935, as 102 Squadron was bush pretty much from Day 1 of WW2?

Indeed he was involved in a plane crash not in a Lancaster but a Halifax.  Over Eindhoven in Holland a 44 sqdn lancaster and a 102 Sqdn Halifax collided during an evasive action and both crashed near Luijksgestel close to the Dutch/Belgian border which killed both the entire crews. Send me a PM and  I will tell you more and also i can put you in touch with the relatives of Glyndwr most and not forget
due to the help of the members of Rootschat.

Cheers,
