Malaysia burial for RAF plane crew killed in 1945 crash


The remains of eight Royal Air Force crew members who died in a 1945 plane crash have been buried in Malaysia.

The burials took place on Thursday, with full military honours, at Cheras War Graves cemetery, in Kuala Lumpur.

Clayton Ford, who led a privately-funded expedition team to unearth the remains of the fallen servicemen, said, "It is a very great ending and a fitting ending for the crew of KL654."
