    Hello

    UK
    DUFFIN, John William - AC2c - 3092515 - the Nottingham Evening Post of January 17th 1947 reported that he died from injuries received whilst undergoing physical training at West Kirby:

    Evidence showed that during a gymnastic class, 12 recruits volunteered to jump over the backs of five men. These included Duffin, and when he went over, he finished up lying on his right side. He did not get up and complained about his back and neck.

    GAY, John - AC2c - 715778 - registered the Wirral? There's a John Gay, aged 22, registered there in March 1947 - his CWGC entry gives his age as 24.

    JAPAN
    COTTON, Roy Douglas - Cpl - 3077422 - the Derby Daily Telegraph of February 1st 1947 reported the following:

    Allenton Man's Death in Japan
    Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Cotton, of 122, Lord Street, Allenton, have received notification that their only son, Corporal Roy Douglas Cotton, has died while serving with the R.A.F. Police in japan.
    The only information given so far about his death is that it was "in an accident."

    Regards

    Simon
