    Everett Phillips was from my home town and buried in the Exeter District Cemetery. He has family her and there is confusion about his death. Records show he was DNB but family say his plan blew up. Does anyone know how he died?

      Hello Darrell, do you have more information about Everett Phillips? For example Day of death or the plane’s serial number?
