    Hi Jagan

    902968 Aircraftman 2nd Class Stewart Vincent MAXTED

    As originally noted by Paul McMillan, his first name should be Stanley. Recently, I emailed CWGC and they have now updated their online record accordingly

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/fi...etails/2764230

    Still to find a cause of death, however!

    Regards,

    Jeff

    Second Officer Richard Horry Winn Correction

    Air Transport Auxiliary

    Date of Death
    Died 28 January 1942


    https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/fi...tails/2436491/

    Thank you for your email below.

    Based on the evidence provided, I have now updated our record for Second Officer Winn to reflect the forenames of Richard Horry and this change should replicate on our website within the next 24 hours or so, please do feel free to check.

    As only initials are inscribed on his headstone at Maidenhead (All Saints), no amendments there are required.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Kind Regards

    YATES, HENRY WILFRED CPL R50609. From Victoria, British Columbia. Died Jan 23/43 age 41. #417 City of Windsor Squadron ( Supporting Liberty And Justice). Death caused by injuries sustained after a robbery with violence in Alexandria. Corporal Yates is buried in the British Military Cemetery at Alexandria, Egypt.
