Cyril James Drane Smith
« on: Thursday 15 February 18 00:28 GMT (UK) »
Could anyone have a look to see if they can find information on the above please.

Cyril J.D. Smith was a member of the crew on a WW2 RAF Halifax bomber which crashed in North Essex in 1943. I believe he is buried at Patna old cemetery at grave 149. He was aged 23.
The aircraft travelled from Pocklington and came down on 25th February 1943 near Ardleigh in Essex.

Cyril was the son of Denis Drane Smith and Gladys Matilda Smith. And husband of Mary Blane Smith of Carnshalloch, Patna.

Many thanks.
