    P/O O. Pederson,

    From the CWGC site it has him as 151 Sqdn man attached to 3 Squadron, No. 13 Training Wing.
    I assume this Training Wing to be one and the same As No. 13 Initial Training Wing, Torquay.

    From This website -

    http://www.devonheritage.org/Places/...gofTorquay.htm

    -see below-

    "October 25th - Lindridge Park, St Paul's Church. This was the first raid on the Palace Hotel (requisitioned in 1939 for use as an RAF hospital. A large red cross was painted on the roof of the hotel according to the Geneva convention). The vicinity strafed by gunfire. Hospital full of service personnel at this time 19 killed, 45 injured and one person missing. Other parts of Torquay were attacked and a gas holder at Hele set on fire."

    I assume that P/O. O. Pederson was one of those killed .

    Alex
