    Hello

    Cpl Charles GARWOOD - 634577 - the Liverpool Echo of July 31st 1941 reported the following:

    AIRMEN'S FATAL CRASH
    A collision late last night at the bend of the Warrington road, Newton, near Leigh, resulted in two airmen being so seriously injured that they died at the Leigh Infirmary.
    Coporal Charles Garwood, aged 21, whose home is at 23 Cornworthy Road, Dagenham, Essex, was driving a motor-cycle with Corporal Kenneth George Gilby, aged 20, of 16 Mayeswood Road, Grove Park, London, as his pillion passenger, when they came into collision with a Leigh Corporation bus, both men being hurled to the ground.


    Cpl Alexander B. GOLDIE - 981009 - the Perthshire Advertiser of August 6th 1941 reported the following:

    Perth Councillor's Nephew Drowned
    Corporal Alexander Bryan Goldie, R.A.F., who was drowned while bathing at Brodick, Arran, was the son of Mr. Andrew Goldie, London, chairman of directors of Messrs. Hood, Morton & Co., lace manufacturers, Newmilns, Ayrshire, and nephew of ex-Bailie James Goldie, Perth.
    It is thought the accident was due to concussion caused when the young man dived from a boat. A sad feature was that his fiancee was a witness to the accident.


    P/O (Pilot) Elijah HENSON - 85928 - the Graves Registration Report Form lists him as being with 18 M.U. The Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he died at 11.15 a.m. about 1 mile north of Craighope Cottage, Innerleithen, due to multiple injuries received in an aeroplane crash.

    Regards

    Simon
