    Hello,

    UK - STAGG

    Staggg was injured in the crash of No.29 OTU Wellington LN159 on 2-4-1945 qv. He succumbed to his injuries on 3-4-1945.

    The screened pilot of LN159, was AUS27178 F/O Reginald Gordon WATTS DFC RAAF, who also died. Bill Chorley (BCL7/337), has misidentified one of the trainee air gunners aboard LN159. The F/S McDermott mentioned by Bill, is in fact: AUS432696 Thomas Leo McDERMOTT RAAF, who was injured.

    Probate calender has LACW R E Cox place of death as a hospital in Belfast and that she was from Belfast, Northern Ireland but she is buried just south of the border in County Louth, in Ireland. Interesting one.
