    MANSFIELD, William - Cpl - 1326666 - he's on the National Probate Calendar as William James Mansfield, of 2 Owen Street, Orange Gardens, Pembroke, but also listed as James William Mansfield on the register of burials for Pembroke, March 13th 1945. In this entry his abode is given as Woodbine House, Pembroke, which was at the time an Emergency Medical Services Hospital.

    CORRECTION to my recent post where I read across to another airman

    JAMES William Mansfield 1326666, a discharged airmen working as an admiralty marine policeman, died in the Woodbine House EMS Hospital, Pembroke of myocardial faliure and Hodgkins disease. There is no indication of why his prior RAF service made him eligible for commemoration
