    Hi all,

    some additional info for:
    O'CONNOR, Bertram Moncrieff - F/Lt - C/5203 - RCAF - Toronto (Mount Hope ) Cemetery, Ontario, Canada.

    He joined the RCAF in 1934, retired on medical grounds on 15.4.1943. So it was a post-discharge death with no more details of the death cause in his service record.
