Crombie, Mervyn Cobbe (1920–1941)

Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Crombie, of Mountside, have been advised that their son, Sergeant-Pilot Mervyn Cobbe Crombie, 21, has been killed in a flying accident in the Middle East.

He was educated at The Scots College, Warwick, and the Church of England Grammar School, Sydney. He enlisted in the R.A.A.F. last year, and went overseas two months ago.

Two brothers of the dead pilot are in the fighting services. An elder brother, Pilot-Officer Charles Crombie, is with the R.A.A.F. in England, and the other, David, is a lieutenant in the ordinance corps of the A.I.F.
