    Five men buried for that date in the cemetery, perhaps there was a mishap.
    001 BAKER H J/206802 HMS TIGRESS 08/12/1918 ROYAL NAVY
    002 GREENWOOD HH 211158 1ST BALLOON BASE AEGEAN GROUP 08/12/1918 ROYAL AIR FORCE
    003 HOSKING FJ - COMPOSITE REPAIR DEPOT AEGEAN GROUP 08/12/1918 ROYAL AIR FORCE
    004 TOOGOOD GE 204662 AEGEAN GROUP 08/12/1918 ROYAL AIR FORCE
    005 TRESCOTHIE HO 960802 HMS HAZEL 08/12/1918 MERCANTILE MARINE RESERVE

    found using
    http://www.hut-six.co.uk/cgi-bin/search1421.php

    Flight Global archives lists Hosking as simply, Died:
    http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1919/1919%20-%200021.html?search=hosking


    then, http://www.naval-history.net/xDKCas1918postArmistice.htm

    Hazel, armed boarding steamer
    TRESCOTHIE, Henry, Greaser, MMR, 960802, illness
    Tigress, destroyer
    BAKER, Harry, Leading Seaman, J 20682, illness

    or it might just be the flu pandemic at the same time.

    For Hosking, the National Probate Calender entry says he died aboard HMS Harapara

    Ken,

    What survives of his RAF airmen's service record is held by National Archives at Kew.

    AIR 79/1844/204662 [note his correct service number, the last part of the file reference]

    Name: George Edward James Toogood

    Not available for download online, unfortunately, so you need to visit to inspect or arrange for someone to do so on your behalf.

    Errol and Dennis
    Thanks for looking guys.
    I've just found his name listed on the War Memorial in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight - so he's not the man I thought.
