Chris wrote this earlier in 2018. He has even more photos to share. Click on the link at the end of this post.
I have attached the photos of the fellow who I believe took the rest of the pictures that I have. The one picture shows him as an AC at #1 AOS Malton.
I have one post card type photo that says the photographer is Claude Hannan but no association to the rest of the photos. I’m not sure if that’s who I’m looking for.
I have no other information beyond that.
A comment made about this post:
This is somewhat unsettling to me and very strange. My father, David L. « Bud » Quinn, who was a Flight Lieutenant at the time of the death of LAC Heal, may have witnessed this accident. He was the Armament Officer in Charge of Gunnery at No. 7 B&GS at Paulson from June 1941 until the end of July 1942.
He described to me once seeing one of his armourers turning without looking and walking into the rotating prop of an aircraft. He called out to him, but not in time. The description of the accident in the medical examiner’s official report above is consistent with how my father described it, namely « partial decapitation & decerebration ». He said that at the time it shook him to the core. Decades later he could still not get the memory out of his head.
May they all now rest in peace! Lest we forget.
Remembering LAC Kenneth Edgar Heal…
Here is the message that has just been posted on a WWII forum. It was about a German pilot who shot down Mervin Jack Mills.
I wonder who put the picture of Erbo von Kageneck on this website:

It’s evidently Erbo von Kageneck:
I had taken this photo from the Internet.
I stand corrected.
