    Hi

    Bishop - He was serving with No 602 Sqn, but was attached to No 242 Sqn at RAF Duxford, and died on leave at Bank House, Rencombe, Hereford, from pneumonia.

    Ford - He was serving with No 909 Sqn, and was killed when bombs hit the SHQ and Site 9/24. His death is registered in West Ham not Gravesend.

    Sanders - He was serving with No 60 MU when he died in the "medical hut" at Shipton from syncope due to enlargement and degeneration of the heart muscle.

    Alex,
    Thanks as always for your work on this. It might be worth clarifying that these three airmen were killed in an explosion during arming of the aircraft at Wattisham, so not crew as such:
