    A few more details for the following:

    WAAF
    UK
    BUICK, Jessie Adam - LACW - 2119818 - the Dundee Courier of February 11th 1946 reported the following:

    PERTHSHIRE W.A.A.F.'s DEATH
    Intimation has been received by Mr and Mrs Harry Buick, 38 Springbank Road, Alyth, of the death of their daughter, L.A.C.W. Jessie Buick, as a result of a road accident at Upwood, Hunts.
    L.A.C.W. Buick, who was 22, had been in the services for three years and expected to be demobilised in June. Prior to enlisting she worked at Alyth Laundry.


    COX, Henry Thomas - F/Sgt - 560584 - findagrave.com has a photo of his headstone, whcih shows he was aged 34 when he died, so he's the one registered in Norwich, Malcolm.

    FOSTER, Montague - AC2c - 1504335 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at Whipps Cross Hospital, London E.11.

    MACLEOD, Alexander William - F/O - 82773 - the Scotland's People website's Statutory Deaths Register has an Alexander William Macleod, aged 60, of Glasgow, retired wine and spirit merchant, died at 5.20 a.m. at Edenhall Hospital, Inverness, of Bronchitis. I guess this may be him?

    WHITING, Bernard James George - LAC - 1865270 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at Bromley Hospital, Kent.

    WYCHE, Francis - W/O - 1023958 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at 80 Hollingbourne Road, Liverpool 11.

    CANADA

    CANADA
    PHILLEY, James Clement - S/Lt - RCNR - on http://www.naval-history.net he's listed in the same incident as:

    JACOBS, Robert Archibald - Lt - O/36075 - RCNVR - the Scotland's People website's Statutory Deaths Register has Archibald Reginald Jacobs, Lieut. R.C.N.R., died about 6.00 p.m. in the sea off Fraserburgh, due to exposure and drowning.
