    McCANN, James - LAC - 1374350 - the Scotland's People website Statutory Deaths register states that he died as the result of a fractured spine at Erskine Hospital at 10.28 a.m. It also states that he died whilst engaged in war service.

    COLE, KELLY, WAITE, COOPER,

    I'm not finding LAC J McCann in Flight magazine lists,


    A J MABEY is listed as Killed on active service; his Grave Reg Form states 9 (C) OTU.

    Hi Jon

    Eric Alan Waite 962832 , attached to No 4 Radio School, died on leave at 2 Myrtle Grove, Wolverhampton from carbon monoxide after leaving the fire on in his bedroom all night with insufficient ventilation

    This is the wrong s/n, see below

    WAITE, ERIC ALAN (1147946) age: 21 RAFVR

    962832 was Ernest Waite, who died in Bridgnorth from broncho-pneumonia
