An Airman's Last Resting Place - Cranwell
Far from where he met his fate, among many such as he, lies the grave of Flt. Lt. Frank Whitehouse RAF. On the date shown he took off in a Lightning interceptor at RAF Tengah in Singapore and in attempting one of the Lightning's spectacular rotation take offs the aircraft over rotated causing it to become unstable whereupon it crashed to earth costing him his young life. Respected by his aircrew colleagues and those of us who served in lesser roles on 74 Sqn. he was to be sadly missed. Tiger! Tiger!
