Farnborough death! Any info?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I was walking through Edwinstowe graveyard on Christmas day on my way to the pub. When I noticed a CWGC headstone. It is for;

Athur Pinder

Airman 1st Class

Royal Flying Corps

Depot (Farnborough)


Died 01/07/1917

Son of George and Elizabeth Pinder of The Crown Hotel, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk. Born at Edwinstowe.

Does anybody have any idea as to the circumstances of his death?

Also there is a S R Pinder on the memorial who may be a relation he was also in the RFC and died 19/02/1918 flying a Sopwith Camel with 80 squadron!

George Pinder was licensee of the Crown Hotel from 3 May 1920 to 3 November 1924.

I have searched the forum and have found nothing.

If you could check for me that would be great.

I can't find a thread on this forum--- Must have been discussed on another forum once upon a time. Back in the back of my ever-more porous memory, I seem to remember he was struck by a propeller. Can't document that, though. Doc
