    11 April 1944 Aircraftwoman 1st Class Ella Esterina Eldon, 28, was killed while “cycling at the airfield to which she was attached at Newark” – only nine weeks after the death of her husband in Lancaster Royal Infirmary. She left their son, John James, born 22 December 1940, to be reared by her devastated parents, Giovanni and Sarah Elizabeth Rossi in her home town of Cleaton Moor, Cumberland.
