    Default Leading Naval Airman Harry Bews Anderson

    This naval airman was stationed at HMS Condor, Arbroath and died on 2 October 1941 aged 25. His service number was FAA/FX85284 and he was from Aberdeen.

    I have tried to find out what happened to him but on Scotland's People it merely stated the place of death as River Tay, which fits in with seaplanes, etc. However, cause of death is given in code form as 1. Other Fleet Air Arm personnel on the alphabetically listed page are coded 1 to 5.

    Does anybody have the breakdown of this coding system - eg 1 - Drowning, 2 - Killed in Action, etc?

    Regards
