    Hello

    UK
    MUGGRIDGE, Dennis William - LAC - 1810940 - the Sevenoaks Chronicle & Kentish Advertiser of July 21st 1944 reported the inquest into his death. He was accidentally drowned in a bathing pool the previous day. His two companions repeatedly tried to rescue him to no avail, and his body was later recovered by police.

    WEBB, Henry - F/L - 8181 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at St. Athan General R.A.F. Hospital.

    Regards

    Simon

    W/O William Hobman (655110) was killed in Beaufighter V8879 when the port engine cut on final approach. This info is from the Group 216 accident report for July 1944.
    Cpl Coles and Sqn Ldr Outram-White aren't listed on the accident report for Ventura JT836 on the NAA site. Possibly they are on the Beaufighter flight?
