Warford-Mein, Adrian John (1910–1932)

Pilot Officer Adrian John Warford Mein, aged 22 years, of Melbourne, who had been attached to the Digby Training School, was killed instantly to-day when a single-seater Avro machine crashed and burst into flames while Pilor-Officer Mein was flying over East Winch, West Norfolk.

Eye-witnesses saw the machine flying low and circle twice as if seeking a landing-place. Suddenly it nose-dived to the ground.

[Pilot-Officer Adrian John Warford-Mein was the eldest son of Mr and Mrs P. Warford-Mein, Wallace avenue, Toorak. Educated at Melbourne Grammar School, which he attended from 1923 to 1928, he went to Pembroke College, Cambridge University to study law.

Instead of returning to Australia he joined the Royal Air Force on December 28, 1931. He was admitted to the Air Force in competition with applicants from all aprts of the United Kingdom and the Dominions.]
