    Olivia, thank you for sharing that information. Even though Henk is not here, his project has many followers here and we all appreciate whatever little detail that one can add to these names. So thank you for adding more to Sgt F J Smith's profile.

    Sgt Herbert B.K. MOSS - 1172592 - Panel 49.

    Both killed when Master N7570 dived into the sea off Grangetown.

    Hi Jon

    "Francis Joseph Smith 580592 , died on the 23rd July, not the 22nd as per CWGC, in RAF Hospital , Donington, of pulmonary tuberculosis"

    According the IBCC website: -

    "In October 1940 Sgt Smith was admitted to RAF Hospital at Cosford suffering from spinal trouble. He never left hospital and after a gallant fight died on the 22nd July 1941."

    That’s what his record says Malcolm. I’ve just basically regurgitated it verbatim as usual .

    23rd July 1941 , RAF hospital Donington , Shifnal , sergeant Francis Joseph Smith aged 22 of 85 Mullock Street, St. John’s Newfoundland . Pulmonary tuberculosis . Certified Kenneth Robson MRGS RAF hospital Donington . Countersigned and signalled to records by Neill CJO G/Capt OC RAF hospital Donington 24/7

    Looking at the map, I think RAF Hospital Donnington, Shifnal and RAF Hospital Cosford are probably the same place, Donnington is the next village to Cosford, Donington being the original name allocated to Cosford.

    Very possibly Malcolm , I wonder if the designation of the hospital was changed at some point, OR , if the isolation area was classed differently as it's a big site ? I have no further information or knowledge of it sorry other than what I have
