    The geographical location is, almost certainly, Clymping in West Sussex (it has a St Mary's Church). This place can also be spelt Climping. Don't know which is the "official" spelling!

    Hello

    UK
    FLYGENRING, Alexander August - Lt(A) - HMS Peregrine - a family tree on ancestry.co.uk records that he was killed in Firebrand EK785. The Eastbourne Herald of June 28th 1947 reported the accident, and records that he was displaying the aircraft at Lee-on-Solent to 250 senior officers of the services, some foreign military representatives and civilian aeronautical experts, when it sideslipped at 150 feet and fell into the back garden some distance from the airfield.

    CANADA
    FORREST, Alexander - WO1c - 1903 - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died at 6 R.D., Trenton due to coronary thrombosis (natural causes) while on duty.

    HILL, Horst - GAF. - registered Bristol.
