    Nancy U was registered as Gillingham in Tonbridge District, Kent. The Christian names are distinct enough to search for alone on freebmd.org.uk Age of 32 matches that of the CWGC Josefsson entry. Her death is listed as DOAS in an early 1945 Flight magazine.

    Afraid my transcriptions here at http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/flight...ndWAAF1944.htm have out lived these updates, I got only as far as December 1944.
