    Air of Authority web site lists AVM Mansell as dying of a heart attack in Washington, DC, while serving with the RAF delegation there. Odd that he would be listed on the Ottawa Memorial (usually means body not found).

    Mansell being on the memorial probably jyst reflects his burial not having been controlled by the CWGC. His family might have been able to have him buried privately. Or the IWGC were not told where his remains were buried. Similar to those buried in municiple cemetries in Ireland and England whose names are on screen walls. I woukd not read this to mean he was missing.
