Capt Duncan Gordon Mackay

Hello all,

I've been commissioned to write an article on the operations of the RAF during  the last days before the Armistice. The above officer was the last RAF casualty of the war, being wounded on 10 November and sadly, dying of his wounds the next day. I would very much like to include a photo of this officer in the article and would be most grateful if anyone has one I could use. 

In advance, many thanks

Alex

Petet, What a fabulous site!. Many thanks for that.  Unfortunately, that of Mackay in the group photo isn't useable. I think my best bet is to see if I can obtain his Royal Aero Certificate photo from the trust, unless a forumite comes up with something in the meantime.

Full name Duncan Ronald Gordon MacKay previously of 19th Bn Royal Fusiliers and Argylle and Sutherland Highlanders (DFC and MID)?

Educated at Cheltenham College, they may have a photo?
