I wonder if someone could advise please? I am trying to figure out which aircraft my great uncle flew in. He was shot down over Singapore in 1941. Death listed as 8th December 1941. Is there a database of aircraft losses or somewhere that I could check for lost aircraft on that day? Any way of finding out where he was and what he was doing at the time? Could anyone help please? I’m new to WW2 research but fairly experienced in general genealogy.
Details I have:
