    From CWGC –

    UK
    HUDSON, Frederick Ernest – AC1c – 529152 – RAF. ( Not HMS Courageous ? ).
    Remembered on the Runnymede Memorial, Surrey.
    From other sources it looks like there are differences of opinion. Ross has in his RAF Coastal Command Volume 1 that Hudson is included in the crew list of Sunderland I, L2165 of 210 Sqn . The 210 Squadron ORB has the crew names and he is not mentioned. The Data on this Forum suggests HMS. Courageous. So was he on HMS Courageous or in the Sunderland OR another casualty event as yet to be discovered ?

    FLEET AIR ARM
    HMS. Courageous.
    INGRAM, Anthony Feilde – Lt.
    MacDONALD, Thomas Donald Mackintosh – Lt(A).
    MARSH, Alfred – NA1c – F.55042.
    WALTON-WILSON, Hugh John Craufurd – Lt.
    WILLIAMS, David Frederick – S/Lt(A).
    Remembered on the Lee-On-Solent Memorial, Hampshire.

    He had complained of stomach pains whilst in Halifax on August 30th, but travelled to St. John with the rest of his party.
