    Just a note about the ATA pilot.

    Kenneth Meryl Seeds was killed on the 8th October 1941 in Wellington Z8424 when the aircraft struck Snaefell on the Isle of Man in cloud. He was flying the aircraft from Hawarden to Aldergrove.

    His headstone makes no reference to him being married only that he was the son of Fred and Mary E. Seeds of Burley, Idaho.

    For info about the crash see the page in the Isle of Man section on my site.
