    MONTGOMERY, Robert Eckford - AC2c - 753619 - RAFVR.
    b. 1908 Peebleshire
    d. 13 Oct 1939 – the first WW2 casualty on the Met Office RoH.
    He was returning from leave (wife believed to have lived in Brixton) to RAF Bicester, where he was a u/t Met Asst. He was in the Waiting Room/Buffet on Bletchley Junction railway station. A local train was stationary at the platform. The Euston-Stranraer express ran into the rear of this train at speed. The trains telescoped, and the wreckage reared up and fell on the buffet. Montgomery was the only casualty – identified by his F1250. His s/n (753619) is in a group of 753xxx that suffered a more than average number of casualties in WW2.
