    Hello

    Continuing with the R.C.A.F. losses, with thanks to Pavel for those he's covered.

    Corporal George GRANT (1744) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died due to coal gas poisoning, with a note stating 'Suicide, Lincs, Eng.'
    His death was reported briefly in the Lincolnshire Echo of March 17th 1942, which recorded that he was found dead in a gas filled room at a house in Lincoln.

    Flight Lieutenant Arthur Henry O'NEILL (C/3334) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died in hospital due to colon carcinoma at Trenton Hospital, having first been admitted to hospital in January.

    Aircraftman 1st Class Arthur SHAVER (R/112771) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he had been discharged from service as physically unfit in December 1941 after having been diagnosed with carcinoma in hospital. He died at Mount Dennis.

    Corporal Francis Clair JOHNSTON (R/121983) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died suddenly due to coronary thrombosis at No.3 Manning Depot, Edmonton, Alberta.

    Leading Aircraftman Herbert Norman FORD (R/59645) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died in hospital at Haywards Heath, Sussex, due to a bullet wound to the head received when "fooling with a gun, shot himself."

    Leading Aircraftman Roy Leo ANEY (R/107958) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died at Alliford Bay due to a self inflicted gunshot from a rifle, cause obscure.

    Flight Lieutenant Harold Abraham McCAGHEY (C/2076) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he was found dead by a hotel maid at 20.15 at the Royal Alexandra Hotel, with a self-inflicted cut in his left elbow which had severed the median basilic vein, and that he died to due blood loss.

    Leading AircraftmanAllister James GARRITTY (R/85419) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he died in Christie Street Hospital at Toronto, due to toxic psychosis and degenerative myocarditis.

    Flight Sergeant Hugh Roderick Neil McCORMICK (R/82657) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he drowned whilst bathing at Evesham, UK. His death was reported in several English newspapers.

    Leading Aircraftman James Arthur REDNER (R/52852) - his R.C.A.F. Service File records that he had been discharged in May 1941, suffering from spleno-myclogenous leukaemia. The report on discharge stated "the outlook in this case is not more than 2 years of life" and he died at Christie Hospital, Toronto.

    Leading Aircraftman John Francis BURNS (R/102612) - the inquest into his death was reported in the Banbury Advertiser of October 7th 1942, which records that he died in Horton General Hospital due to injuries sustained in a road accident at Wardington on September 19th. A witness recorded that L.A.C. Burns had been on his bicycle and was hanging to the back of a lorry which was towing a trailer. The witness, a sergeant in the lorry, ordered Burns to stop as he thought it dangerous. In complying, Burns' bicycle wobbled, and his back wheel was hit by the wheel of the trailer, which then ran over him. A verdict of Accidental death was returned.

    Regards

    Simon
