    EGYPT
    Cpl. A Lowe - RAFVR - 746121 - GRO Unit listed 221 Sqn.
    Sgt. N A MONDAY - RAF - 812164 - GRO units listed as 'Aboukir'

    Can't find these two in Flight magazines.

    TUNISIA
    F/Sgt. Reginald James RIDER - RAFVR - 1196269 - GRO Unit is 889 AMES, same as two airmen Casson (DOAS) and Carreck who died on Sep 29th.
    He is named as DOAS in Cas Com 325, name is scanned as "8gt, R. .1. Wider;" so that didn't help finding him.

    Sibson cum Stibbington (Death Reg) was in Hunts North at the time. Sibson was parented by RAF Peterborough(Westwood). 7(P)AFU was based at Peterborough. I would think that Henk's 18(P)AFU may, possibly, be in error?

    Corporal Arthur Lowe , 221 Sqdn ?

    221 was based at Luqa 1/43 to 3/44.

    I have seen 107 MU quoted for Cpl Lowe. That seems to be more likely as 107 MU was at Kasfareet.

    FWIW.

    GRO overseas war deaths lists gives 221 Sqn.
    As hes not aircrew he is most likely someone died from illness. Whats the source for the MU?

    Hi all,

    ACW2 Lord was serving at 83 OTU, Peplow and died after being knocked off her bicycle, by a lorry, on the Eaton-on-Tern to Ollerton Road.

    Cheers,

    Tom
