    I don't have anything for these, from the ORBs I have found quite a few accidents on this date but all were non-fatal.

    Hi Henk
    Burgin, 41, registered at Nottingham
    Newman,56, registered at Aldershot, Hampshire. The age ties in with CWGC and he is buried at Brookwood which is in the area.
    Rogers is buried at Lerwick and possibly died there
    Regards
    Dick

    Rogers died of 'penetrating gunshot wound' at Gilbert Bain Hospital, Lerwick.

    Thanks friends for your responses. Rogers may have been wounded aboard an aircraft that returned safely to base (probably at an earlier date ?). Only the ORB may tell us what happened.
    Regards,
    Henk.
