    I have missed there are two of them:

    CANADA
    POULTON, Fred Raymond - AC2c - R/169949 - RCAF.
    Montreal ( Mount Royal ) Cemetery, Quebec, Canada.

    Post-discharge death, 23.5.1945 discharge from the RCAF - I have found no cause of death in his service record.

    Hello

    GERMANY
    DREDGE, Maurice R - Bombardier - 796301 - the Shepton Mallet Journal of November 14th 1947 reported that he had been found strangled in a wood near Celle. Three German men had been arrested in connection with the murder, which was thought to be motivated by robbery - two of the men had confessed, and one of them had in his possession the dead man's wallet, watch and shoes. The article records his full name as Robert Maurice Cornelius Dredge.

    I can't seem to find any follow up articles to see what the result of the arrests was, however.

    UK
    BELCHER, Derrick Gibson - Air Artificer 4c - L/FX.78596 - ADM 104 records that he drowned as the result of a bathing accident at Treyarnon Bay, St. Merryn.

    Regards

    Simon.
