    Note correct name is Richard Horry WINN ATA Miles Master T8614 28th January 1942


    http://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk/...les/t8614.html

    CWGC has

    Second Officer Richard Harry WINN () Air Gunner Miles Master T8614 Ext Link


    I have submitted today an amendment for CWGC to correct his middle name based on ATA Service Record, Obit and RAF LG record and lots of other sources

    Mikhail Gewargis 4378 , attached to Number 28 Company , was found lying on the roadside on 3 October and was admitted to Number 32 General hospital at 17:00 hours in a semi conscious state bleeding profusely from the right ear . No other head injury was found on x ray and he could take fluids, but developed some flaccid paralysis of his left arm and leg which diminished on 4 October. At 16:45 Hours he became very irritable and the paralysis returned but a pain test could be observed to work in an otherwise comatose counternance . An exploratory operation was undertaken at 17:45 hours under Pentothal N2 O plus O2 and his skull opened to find an extra dural clot and his meningeal artery was torn and still weeping. The operation was concluded but he soon became rapidly worse , and died at 22:55 hours with a temperature of 104 . A post mortem strongly criticised the delay in the operation and felt he would have lived had it been undertaken earlier
