    Default H Winder - 26-01-1945 Nicosia War Cemetery

    Looking for details on the death of Henry WINDER - 181113 who died on 26 Jan 1945, buried in Nicosia War Cemetery. He is listed as KOAS.

    Also buried in same cemetery and died on same date George Henry Frederick BURGESS - 153882. He is listed in same casualty list as KOAS.

    Many thanks
    Martyn

    The two are listed as being with No 5 (ME) ARC Winder and Burgess 1 (ME) ARC

    on the GRO list of RAF overseas deaths. What woudl an ARC be? Aircraft recovery ??? ARU would make sense as a Unit.

    Thanks for the information guys.
    WINDER was a pilot and BURGESS was a navigator so it looks like an aircraft accident.
    Not sure whether they would have been based on Cyprus or elsewhere.


    Thanks
