    Hello

    JORDAN, David Cameron - AC2c - 1826840 - the Dundee Courier of September 19th 1944 reported that he died in an R.A.F. hospital in Wales. An announcement in the Leven Mail of September 20th 1944 records that he died "at R.A.F. General Hospital, St. Albans, South Wales."
    I think that should be St Athan.

    WRIGHT, Edmund Basil Higham - P/O (Pilot) - possibly killed whilst flying in Tiger Moth II, T7360 of No 26 EFTS - the G.R.R. Form confirms his unit as 26 E.F.T.S.

    Regards

    Could that be "par Scata" - i.e. by/near Scata in Corsican? Scata is a commune in Corsica.
