    Hello

    Sgt David M.S. MURRAY - 551162 - David Matthew Sinclair Murray. The Aberdeen Press and Journal of March 13th 1942 reported the following:

    R.A.F. Sergeant Killed
    Sgt. David M. S. Murray, R.A.F., eldest son of Mr and Mrs Murray, 2 Calsayseat Road, Aberdeen, who was an armourer, has been accidentally killed. Sgt. Murray joined the R.A.F. boys' service when he left the Central Secondary School in 1936. He served with a fighter squadron in France during the evacuation, and for a year was attached to the Air Ministry as an instructor.

    Regards

    Simon
