    ??? I tried Herbert D Brown there and he turned up.

    make sure to select either 'all types' or 'deaths' in the upper box

    the surname Brown

    fornames need to be Herbert D First name and middle initial only.

    Then just the year date, Mar 1943 to Dec 1943

    Anyway, was only mentioning it, i don;t want to see your threads disappear from the forum by telling you how to do everything....

    Default Sgt (Pilot) Paul RANDLETT - 1393710

    Litcham_Lad is again correct with AK583 being this aircraft.

    Aircraft was undertaking a training flight when it was seen to spin, which was not recovered and aircraft crashed near Abu Sueir.

    Thanks Buz for confirmation. At the moment working on the Alamein Memorial and probably will meet many names of airmen missing and related to Kittyhawk aircraft.
    Regards,

    Hello

    LAC Herbert D. BROWN - 1456752 - the Hampshire Telegraph of July 30th 1943 reported that for reasons unknown he jumped out of the wrong side of a train whilst it was at Bedhampton Halt. He started to walk towards Portsmouth in the six foot walkway between the up and down lines, but was struck by the Waterloo to Portsmouth train, killing him instantly. A verdict of accidental death was recorded.

    AC2 Dennis G. HALL - 1638838 - the Western Mail of August 2nd 1943 reported the following:

    R.A.F. Man's Suicide
    A verdict of "Suicide whilst temporarily of unsound mind" was recorded at an inquest at Prestatyn on A.C.2 Dennis George Hall, Glenholm, North Heath, Pulborough, Sussex, who was found dead at a North Wales R.A.F. station with a gunshot wound to his head.
    Mrs. Maragaret Helen Hall, the widow, said she last saw her husband in June. He then seemed quiet and nervous. She noticed a difference in his manner, and had asked him what he was worrying about, but he seemed to "draw into himself." He had never threatened to take his own life.

    Regards

    Simon
