    A correction this time.

    576378 Aircraftman 1st Class Raymond George ANDERSON

    AC1 Anderson is currently listed among airmen killed in air raids. Based on various newspaper reports--including the Chelmsford Chronicle of September 5, 1941--he in fact died in Ongar Hospital on 27 August 1941 as a result of injuries accidentally caused during a 'mock duel' with another airman, his best friend. Given the location of the hospital, he was probably based at North Weald.
