    Margaret Craig Anderson died in Strathcaro Hospital Angus. The cause of death was severance of a femoral artery in the lower right leg which could mean a road accident.

    ORB of R.A.F. Station Tealing
    A fatal accident at Kinnel.
    No. 459929 A.C.W. Anderson was cycling to breakfast when she fell and crashed a cup she was carrying at the time causing a piece of the cup to penetrate her left groin, which set up Arterial Haemorrhage, from which she died.

    Hello

    JOHNSON, George Edward - LAC - 1193021 - the Daily record of Decemebr 4th 1943 reported the follwoing:

    Train Hits Bus: 2 Dead
    Two members of the R.A.F. were killed and 16 airmen and W.A.A.F.s injured when an express goods train crashed into a bus at a level crossing at Hack Green, near Nantwich, Cheshire, yesterday. The two dead airmen are George Edward Johnson, of Stoke-on-Trent, and Percy Harold Green, both leading aircraftmen.
    The train, travelling from Crewe to Warrington, crashed into the bus, the body of which was wrenched from the chassis and thrown to the side of the road. The driver was the only one on the bus to escape injury.

    SHARPE, John Henry - Sgt (Nav/Ba/WoP) - 1293926 - their respective Graves Registration Report Forms confirm their unit as 1409 Flight.
