    Hi Henk
    I tried to find the War Deaths website ,if any, but all Google came up with was someone else's search for the name Wigg. It comes from a Rootsweb site but I can't find the way in for a more general search. Notice the second name- Vernon S H Wigg and the unit as HMT Anselm. As you expressed an interest in that loss he might be on your list somewhere.
    WIGG: Overseas Deaths
    Year Name Age Rank Number Unit
    1944 Philip M S/Ldr 33202 57 Sqdn
    1941 Vernon S H A.C.1 572417 HMT "Anselm"
    Regards

    Henk,

    I believe the RAF Overseas War Deaths can be accessed through ANCESTRY ? I'm more used to microfiche .

    I use Ancestry and unfortunately the list doesn't seem to be there and I couldn't find a way in via Rootsweb which is an Ancestry site

    Hi All

    I have access to "RAF Overseas Deaths 1939-1948" through www.familyrelatives.com (37.50 per year) but as I search through it I'm printing off each page so hopefully will eventually have a hard copy.

    LAC Joseph E Armishaw was registered in Richmond, North Yorkshire not Richomnd, Surrey as previously stated. This is more appropriate to 76 Squadron at Middleton St George.
