    You will see there he was classed as DOAS, so death from natural causes, or accident or maybe a V2 etc Also he was with an RAF RSU.

    S D Barbour was Scottish born, and I think only his mother was living in the USA at the time she responded to the CWGC, but Stuart himself wasn't actually American.

    I have asked to ancestry.com tree owners if they have cause of death information.
