    Default Private 2nd Class 199716 Herbert S F M Bedford, No.14 Aircraft Acceptance Park

    I'm trying to find out where and when Private 2nd Class 199716 Herbert Stephen Frank Mafeking Bedford enlisted. If a photo of him was available, that would be ideal. It would also help to know what he died from.

    He was born 17/05/1900 Fareham, Hampshire and died 23/07/1918 (Died at 1st Southern General Hospital, Birmingham).

    Son of Henry and Charlotte Eliza Bedford of 3 West End Cottages, Fareham, Hampshire

    Any help very much appreciated!

    Hi

    His records are very sparse, he entered the RAF on 18 Jun 1918 and was posted to 14 AAP on 29 Jun 1918.

    No trade or classification (rank) is shown but he died from cerebro spinal meningitis.

    Thanks Malcolm.

    Looks like he died soon after enlisted.

    Where abouts would he have enlisted?

    His records simply show him at the Reserve Depot (Blandford) before posting to 14 AAP so presumably at Blandford.

    Thanks Malcolm, that would indeed seem the most logical conclusion.
