6 Squadron Deaths Since 1914
Since the formation of 6 Squadron in January 1914, one hundred and ninety-six (196) men have died in service (this figure includes Captain Wilfred Picton-Warlow who crashed into the English Channel and drowned shortly after leaving the squadron to return to England). Only twelve of this number were buried at cemeteries in the United Kingdom as it has long been the custom of the Ministry of Defence to have service personnel buried close to where they were stationed at the time of their death and seven of the twelve men died in recent years when 6 Squadron was stationed in the United Kingdom.
The table below lists the details for each man and can be sorted in any sequence or searched by name. Below the table is a graphic displaying the name os every 6 Squadron man, listed in alphabetical order within each time period (eg. WW1, 'between the wars', WW2 and post WW2).
I would like to thank Phill Millward, official historian for the 6 Squadron RAF Association, for providing me with the full list of 6 Squadron casualties (as shown in the table below) as well as filling in the gaps as and when more details are determined.
Note: Seventeen (17) of the men who died whilst in the service of 6 Squadron are buried at the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery (renamed the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery). For more details, go to the Ma'Asker Cemetery section of this website.
