    F/O James 'Howard' MENARY - 62689 commemorated on Panel 3 Column 1 of the Malta Air Forces Memorial. I've him as being killed on Spitfire V.C serial BR322 of OADU. I do believe he was from the Irish Republic.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Default Fate of Annesley Cooke

    I am Edward Annesley Cooke's niece. I am not entirely sure, but I believe my uncle died of an undiagnosed kidney complaint. He returned to base in Scotland and managed to land the plane and then collapsed.
    My mother felt the doctor at the base was considered incompetent. She was a nursing sister of some repute. So was my aunt. It is highly likely that my uncle came back to my aunt's nursing home and died there.
    I will contact his daughter and verify my opinion.
