    Default 1939 Airman's death ,Iraq

    IRAQ
    YACUBE Pera - Pvt - 178 - RAF Iraq Levies.
    Habbaniya, Memorial, Iraq.

    What was the cause of this airman death ?

    I see from todays(?) posts that ALL 1939 Unaccounted have been solved.

    I have tried ENDLESSLY, expending a very large amount of effort to try to solve this one in a multitude of sources and so far found nothing

    He's still there as 'unaccounted' when I checked the database just now.

    Something I have been pondering on and off for several years is whether he is a duplicate entry from the CWGC


    It could just be a coincidence; I doubt I'll ever know!

    I've thought just that myself. It's a close name and a close number , but I've not found either of them yet despite much effort and I've not found any reference to an Iraq Levy death in 1939 . I have found the entire list of the causes of Iraq Levies after then, buts it only in statistic form, e.g. 1943 5 in shootings, 4 of Tyhoid, 1 drowned etc etc.

    It's annoying as I worked my nuts off to fully complete 1939 apart from that sole Levy
