There is a young Russian cadet buried in Yatesbury. I assume that he was learning to fly but I know nothing more about him. Can anyone help please?

Thank you Alf.   I am not a subscriber so can't see the documents (and I vaguely recall there being some rule against posting them but I may be wrong).  

 

Would he have had anything to do with 66 Sqn before he started his flying training?  How long was he at Yatesbury for?
