Remembered with honour
THESE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE FLEET AIR ARM DIED IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY AND HAVE NO GRAVE BUT THE SEA.
Lt Tod was killed during flying exercises off Trincomalee. As he approached the ship to land he torque stalled and, turning over on his back, he plunged into the sea upside down. The aircraft sank immediately, and sadly his body was not recovered.
