    Malcolm,

    Pilkington and Price are both registered in Millom, Cumberland. As for Rouse, l can't locate him, so won't speculate on his fate.

    Hi Col

    I still can't find Price in the 1st or 2nd Quarter 1945 death registers, where did you get the info from?

    Malcolm,

    Apologies, l meant Pilkington and Rouse both registered in Millom. It was Price that l could not locate.

    Col

    My apologies also, the transcription for Rouse stated Midhurst but on checking the actual entry on the register it definitely states Millom as you say.

    If Price was in Scotland, perhaps he was connected by his body washed ashore across the border, which could still link the three.

    NC691 is listed as being with No 105 OTU

    Malcolm
