Can anyone give me anymore details of the loss of this pilot in 1945? Is there an information about what caused the loss of the aircraft or what operations he had flown before the night he failed to return? Any additional details greatly appreciated for his family.

Mosquito crew member with 2 Group, killed a tragically short time before the end of the war in circumstances that led to his body not being identified.
