My mother lives in Anderson drive in Leamington spa and she told me it was named after a an American pilot from World War II that crashed landed his plane near to here I believe.

But I've been unable to corroborate this I'm just hoping there is somebody out there on the forum that can do this.

Thank you in anticipation for your replies

Google is your friend

Just beat me to it.

Bit of back ground here. B-24J of 492BG serial 42-51251

There should be a missing aircrew report, not sure if it is available free on the web.

Thank you very much for your replies .

I didn't realise the poor fellow died saving civilians.

I told my Mum who is ill and she says she is proud to live in Anderson Drive, named after a true hero.
