    Hello

    UK
    GERRISH, Kenneth William - AC2c - 2313645 and
    REYNOLDS, John Edward - AC2c - 2334208
    The Western Daily Press of August 23rd 1947 reported that Gerrish drowned after he was caught in a swirling current at the mouth of the River Deben, and Reynolds drowned whilst attempting to rescue him. They were both on a radio training course based at R.A.F. Bawdsey.
    The same newspaper on August 29th reported the inquest. Both airmen were part of a class bathing as part of their physical training. The Coroner criticised the lack of standing orders regarding precautions to be taken at the place they were bathing which was dangerous at ebb tide, and the lack of boat, lifebelts and life guards. He returned averdict of "Death by misadventure."

    INGHAM, John - Cpl - 1450852 - the National Probate Calendar records tnat he died in the Corporation Hospital, Blackburn.

    SINGAPORE
    CHADBOND, Austin - AC1c - 3039702 - Seletar.

    Regards

    Simon
