    Radio Operator Leo Benedict DOHERTY
    Flight Engineer Hamish Ian DOUGLAS

    were both casualties of Liberator 41-1119 (http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...p?uniq=41-1119)
    according to https://www.ipswichwarmemorial.co.uk...ack-woodmason/

    Our older posts suggests
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...1335#post91335
    http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/10023.php

    the crew complete crew of Liberator 41-1119 should be

    G/C Herbert Reginald Carefoot, RCAF Pilot
    W/C Mervyn John Cameron Stanley, RAF Pilot
    P/O William George Jack Woodmason, RAF Nav
    Leo Benedict Doherty, Cdn civ RO
    Hamish Ian Douglas, Cdn civ FE
    Lost out of Gander

    But then we will have no one left for LV347
    BUT the LV347 seems to me should be a Liberator so there is a probability that Liberator 41-1119 may be allocated RAF serial number LV347? Anyone can confirm my guess please?

    Some of the remaining deaths in Canada:

    Leading Aircraftman Graham BUTT (798690)
    Aircraftman 2nd Class Dennis John SHARPE (1219319)
    Corporal Doris Helen SCOTT (W/301287)

    already mentioned here:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...257#post147257

    However, Cpl Scott's Circumstances of Casualty card records that death was due to arsenic (self administered).

    Flying Officer Anthony Robert FROST (48887) - his Circumstances of Casualty card records that he was killed in flying accident with 31 E.F.T.S., aircraft stalled and crashed when giving dual instruction in the low flying area. Pupil was L.A.C. Simecek.

    Aircraftman 1st Class George ELRICK (947220) - his Circumstances of Casualty card records that he was killed instantly when travelling in a lorry which was struck by a train at a level crossing on the main road between Windsor and Goderich. He was serving with 31 A.N.S.

    Sergeant Raymond Joseph SWINGLER (416647) - his Circumstances of Casualty card records that he died of natural causes at 15.30 hours while on a route march in the city of Halifax, N.S.

    I think that just leaves AC.2 Edward Freegard THOMPSON. Unfortunately his Casualty card has no details of the circumstances of his death, just that he was serving with No.8 Repair Depot, Winnipeg.
