    There is a Gerald Waldo Gates registered in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen district for 1941. Can't view the details but there is something there. Gates and Wright are buried in Rosskeen cemetery.

    Do we thus have
    G W Gates (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen)
    Wright (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen)
    Addison (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen)
    Page (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Nigg district)
    Perry (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen)
    Nixson (Also in Ross and Cromarthy, Rosskeen)

    John Campbell Marshall age 19 turns up in the Minor Records, Service Returns register in Scotlandspeople for 1941.

    GATES' death is registered as being the result of multiple injuries following a flying accident. Time of death is given as 12.30 hrs on the 12th September at the Royal Naval Hospital Invergordon.

    I wonder if I might ask what caused the death of the following airmen, all dead 12 Sep 1941 and all registered in melton Mowbrey district. Overall is on a family tree on Ancestry.com and the location of death is given as Saltby.

    F/Sgt D H Bartlett (Pilot)
    Sgt E F Chamberlain (W/O AG) Buried Cottesmore
    Sgt A P Overall (Pilot)
    Sgt D G K Smith (W/O AG) Buried Cottesmore
    Sgt H R Tuff (W/O AG)
    Sgt T I A West (Pilot)
    Sgt V H Griffiths RNZAF (Pilot) Buried Cottesmore
    Sgt J E Wall RNZAF (pilot) Buried Cottesmore

    From googling it seems it was a collision of two Hampdens of 14 OTU on a night training flight.

    T I A West came from and is buried in my native Sligo, Ireland. Buried sam cemetery as W B Yeats the poet.
