by: kurtis Images or Pre-war information for Anthony Neville Wilson 2015-09-19 18:41:29

Does anyone have an image, background (pre-war) details on this pilot. He was 33 years old when he was killed. Commonwealth Graves indicates his parents home-town of Baffledown, Gloucestershire. Approx co-ords of crash?
