    AUS402391 Sgt Thomas D. PARKER - RAAF, who was killed 12-10-1941 and his name commemorated on Column 246of the Alamein Memorial. Suppose having read in NAA file that he may have been of 3 RAAF Sqn and "Fired on and shot out of parachute". 3 RAAF Sqn lost this day Tomahawks IIB serials AK516, AK566 and AN355.

    This 3 squadron site provides these details,
    http://www.3squadron.org.au/indexpages/kia.htm

    Sergeant Thomas Dudley Parker, service number 402391, is recorded on the Alamein Memorial, Egypt. Column 246. Age 28. Son of Thomas Joseph and Lydia Parker, of Vaucluse, New South Wales, Australia.

    On 12/10/41 Leutnant Rudolf Sinner of I/JG27 shot Dudley Parker's Curtiss Tomahawk IIB AN355 out of a defensive circle in the Bir Sheferzen area; he baled out of his burning aircraft but bullets cut his parachute harness and he fell 4.000 feet. It was reported at the time that a 109 pilot had deliberately shot at him in his parachute.

    Hi Henk,

    Form 1180 gives 2 killed on V9612. Pilot Sgt S H Alsop.

    It would be reasonable to confirm Garrett as other casualty given location of death registration.

    Regards
    Ross

    Thanks Ross for info on Hurricane V7509 and Sgt MacDERMID (11-10-1941).
    GARRETT (12-10-1941) was already in my files on 7 AACU Lysander V9612; CWGC lists him as being 495 Sqn what may be incorrect. As far as I know was 495 Sqn never formed during WW2
    Regards,
    Henk..

    Hello

    Cpl Robert STEWART - 520472 - the Perthshire Advertiser of October 15th 1941 reported the following:

    Killed While On Leave From Middle East
    On his first home leave after over four years' service with the R.A.F. in the Middle East, Corporal Robert Stewart (30), son of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart, Luncarty Home Farm, was knocked down and killed by a train at Inveralmond, near Perth, late on Saturday night.
    Stewart had visited Perth on Saturday night, and, it is believed, missed his bus. Taking a short cut by way of the railway, he had apparently failed to notice the approaching train.


    Regards

    Simon
