    Default F/S Albert Grange

    Guys,

    Part of the crew of the 7 Squadron Lancaster with John Woolston, he is listed as being killed in the aircrafr incident and entered on the Runnymead memorial but also as a POW, with the same service number 1127597. It is understood that he died in hospital of his wounds on the same day, but no known grave?

    Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    The entry on Runnymede means that the location of his grave was lost and cannot be established from either recovered remains or post war records.

    The Red Cross would have picked up his name from the hospital register but without proof of burial will have continued to keep his name and number on the PoW returns in case he had been sent to another detention camp.

    His name does not have a camp or location against it in the lists.

    Regards
    Ross
