    Default Sgt Henry Menary (748613) 27/8/41

    Hello all, another request for aircraft serial and the cause of death for this chap please? His name appeared in the LG earlier in the month for the award of the DFM with 22 Squadron and he was evidently still with the squadron at the time of his death.

    Any help appreciated!

    Cheers, Tom

    Hi Tom

    I think we are suffering more memoryitis ;)

    Henk posted to your query before

    Beaufort Mk.I - N1171 - OA-H - Op: Gardening.
    Lost off Brest, France. The Beaufort signalled SOS at a time that suggested that it was on its return flight.
    F/Sgt Menary and Sgt T.S. Royan (RCAF) rest in St.Mary's Cemetery, Cornwall.
    Sgt's F.S.R. Heard and R.P.S. Grenfell on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Though the CWGC state that both Menary and Rowan rest on Scilly

    Ah yes, i think you're right Amrit, although I think the beer last night doesn't help either!

    Cheers, Tom

    Tom/Amrit,

    Both Menary and Royan, are buried in the North square plot in the Old Church Cemetery, located on the Isle of St. Mary's (O.S. 203/912102), in the Scillies.

    Hi Henk,

    Good question. I made the distinction for Amrit's benefit. St Mary's is an island in the Scillies group.
