    Crowley - He possibly died from injuries sustained on 28 Oct 1944 whilst flying in Marauder III, HD671 of No 3 FU, which flew into high ground on take off from Bilbeis in fog.

    Topping - He was serving with No 8 (O) AFU and died in the County Hospital, Bangor from pulmonary odeama due to malignant hypertension.
