    William Davidson 1350646 , attached to Number 1 PHU, was admitted seriously ill to RAF Hospital Halton on 14 August suffering with a tumour of the upper right jaw. He was transferred to the Westminster hospital, London on 4 October 1947, dying of a malignant tumour of the cheek.

    William Davidson is the last Airman who died post war resting in Scotland to be fully accounted. EXCEPT for 1017102 John Henry Young of whom no trace, not even an official GRO reference, can be found
