    CALCOTT, Stanley Kenneth (New Zealander) - OS - C/JX.201674 - the UK British Army and navy BMD Records 1730-1960 records that he died due to compression of the brain as the result of an accidental fall on board S.S. Whitley at Blyth, Northumberland.

    At the risk of asking a daft question, as he was an Ordinary Seaman according to his entry on the CWGC website, why is he on Unaccounted Airmen list...?
