    ROZEWICKI, Dobieslaw Boleslaw - Plutonowy - P/793003 - the inquest into his death was reported in the Lincolnshire Echo of Novemebr 21st 1940. The article records that he was struck from behind by a car while walking on the left-hand side of a road near Lincoln at night. A verdict of 'Death by misadventure' was recorded, and the jury expressed the opinion that airmen should be warned by their commanding officers to walk on the right side of the road, so facing oncoming traffic, rather than on the left hand side.
