    Default Hugh Hume 1554179 Aircraftman 1st Class died 13/10/45

    I am looking for any details for this chap.

    I have been unable to find anything so far other than the basic details.

    All the details I have at the moment.

    Hugh Hume age 41 Aircraftman 1st Class 1554179 died 13th October 1945.

    Anything on this chap would be appreciated.

    Even just the circumstances of his death and where he was based at the time.

    I have some spare credit on the Scotlands People site and have looked up his Death certificate.
    He died from Pulmonary Tuberculosis at Bangour Village Hospital at Broxburn.
    It states he had the disease for 2 years and his occupation is listed as Greenkeeper so must have been discharged prior to his death.

    Thanks for that Andy.

    Does anyone have anything to add for him service wise. Where did he serve and with who.

    Thanks everyone.

    My apologies for contradicting Andy but Hume appears to be still serving at the time of his death and his name appears in the CWGC registers as being buried at Dunbar.

    Scotlandspeople - a very useful resource since you can see the Death Cert - may have shown his civilian occupation and although he might have had the condition for several years, he might have only deteriorated shortly before his death.

    If one looks at the newspapers for Dunbar, there might be some reference to him and as a male of 41, he might reasonably be supposed to have a family/wife/kids.

    His death certificate records his usual residence as Dunbar so that would tie up with the site of burial.
