    Default Fg Off Frank Anthony Russell BISHOP

    Hoping someone can help me with a little information on the above man to fill my gaps:

    • I cannot locate his service number - can anyone help with this, please?
    • Born Malvern, Worcs, Sep Qtr 1909 - can anyone provide an exact date, please?
    • Resigned SSC as Fg Off, 3 Jun 31 - not sure why, maybe ill health (not really expecting a response on this)
    • Died Sodbury, Gloucs, ca Mar 39, aged 29 - can anyone provide an exact date or cause of death, please?

    Cheers

    From the Birmingham Daily Gazette, March 7th 1939:

    TENNIS PLAYER'S DEATH
    The death has taken place at Cromhall, Gloucestershire, after a short illness, of Mr. Frank Anthony (Tony) Russell-Bishop, son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Russell-Bishop, of Malvern, and well-known in Midland tennis circles.
    Aged 29, Mr. Russell-Bishop had been a flying officer in the R.A.F., and latterly pilot on the staff of Parnall's Aircraft Works at Yate, near Bristol.
    The funeral is at Malvern Cemetery tomorrow.


    Regards

    Thanks Simon, that's a great help, and the first time I've seen the name hyphenated. All RAF and official docs mention him with the sole surname BISHOP.
