Flying Officer Felix Maurice Krish (or Krisch) was an English airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born on 2 October 1916, in Islington, the son of Polish-born music conductor Serge and Jessie Krish (née Konskier), of London. In 1939, Krish was working as an actor while volunteering for the London County Council Ambulance Service.[1]

Krish, serving as a bomb aimer and navigator in 1600 Heavy Conversion Unit, died on 12 February 1943, when his Avro Lancaster (serial R5676) crashed at Oldfield's Field, Sturton-by-Stow, with the loss of its eight crew. The aircraft had suffered a starboard wing failure and broke up in flight.[2] He had married, in 1942, to Tatiana Moiseiwitsch, a designer in the theatre industry.

He is buried in Willesden Jewish Cemetery.
