    The date of death Alfred Richard Bundock on the CWGC site is listed as 30/9/1944 not 2/10/44.
    I can find no loss matching this in 'The Typhoon & Tempest Story' or in FCL.
    His service number suggests that he was an Aircrafthand who enlisted between June 1925 & March 1938.
    There was an Alfred R Bundock born in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire in 1918.
    Regards
    Andy

    Hello, Sgt Alfred Bundock was my close relation. Our family record says that he died 30/09/44. It would also fit our family history that he would have been born in Aylesbury in 1918. Can anybody tell me how I can find out more information about him? Thanks.

    Hello Daisy,

    You might contact the Air Historical Branch (R.A.F.)
    Ministry of Defence
    Building 824
    RAF Northolt
    West End Road
    Ruislip Middlesex HA4 6NG


    The death of Sgt Bundock is not recorded in No. 121 Wing Operations Record Book (AIR 26/179 at The National Archives in Kew). Two days before, the airfield was subjected to intense shelling while at B.70 Deurne (Antwerp) but no casualties were recorded. Perhaps the Wing Diarist only meant strict members of the Wing, and didn't record members from the Squadrons ? That day, "A" echelon moved from B-70 Deurne to B.80 Volkel. On 30th September, "A" echelon "had established itself sufficiently to be ready to receive the aircraft. Between 13.00 and 13.45 hours, all aircraft except 7, which for one reason or another, were U/S, arrived."

    No. 175 Squadron was part of that Wing, with 174 and 184 Squadrons. No. 175 Squadron O.R.B. can be found in AIR 27/1111 at T.N.A. on microfilm.

    A letter to the A.H.B. would be the best first step. When you have an answer, please come back to us to give us the details.
