    Default S/L Jack David Humphreys 41419

    MotBoB records the death of this officer 2/8/1942 whilst with 605S and he is buried in Putney Vale Cemetry.

    But: 605S left for Malaya in December 1941 and I can find no trace of him in the death registers for England or Scotland.

    Does anyone know more please?

    regards

    Thankyou, now I see that 605S was reformed at Malta in Jan 1942 after disbandment in Malaya following the Japanese occupation. Squadron was again disbanded to be reformed at Ford in June 1942.

    regards
