Here the web site of Lt. Andrew Tyrrell, thanks to his family who gave me scans of his log book:

http://saafww2pilots.yolasite.com/andrew-tyrrell.php

It is always sad for me to see the log book entries very enthusiastically being jotted down and then on one day it suddenly stop to appear with only blank pages left for the rest of the book, as in Andrew's case.

... we subsequently decided to construct this web site in remembrance to one of our brave SAAF ww2 fighter pilots who lost his life while doing operational duty.

Very nice site, Tinus. Thanks for sharing. History-nuts ... All of us!

Wouldn't you like to help out with confirming if possible, if a certain Peter Bevin had flown and died with SAAF near Greece around 1942 - 1945? More details here:

Thx Tinus, pity though, you don't maybe know about a website where one can cross reference pilots to aircraft to operations etc?
