Many RAF accidents in the UK were caused by the capricious British weather, and one of those who lost his life was Clifford John Evans, who is buried at Bridgend, Glamorganshire, close to where his family lived. He left a wife and two small children. Clifford had been flying on a training exercise in Yorkshire when he was killed, along with all of his crew, on 18 October 1944.
