    LEWIS, Cyril Edwin - LAC - 1692611 - the Chelmsford Chronicle of April 19th 1946 reported the following:

    Airman Killed in Overturned Jeep
    A verdict of accidental death was returned at a Colchester inquest on Tuesday on Cyril Edwin Lewis, 23, R.A.F., aircraftman, stationed at Earls Colne, who was fatally injured when the jeep in which he and six others were travelling back to camp overturned at Coggeshall on the night of April 7th.

    LIMBIRD, Victor - Air Cpl - P/5582V

    From the Certificate of Death On Service on FamilySearch;

    Victor Whitley LIMBIRD

    'Died of multiple fracture of face and frontal region' - cause not specified.


    From the Death Notice on FamilySearch

    Died at 'Military Hospital, Wynberg' and reported by his mother 'Present at death' - so presumably an accident in the preceding days
