    Default 67712 F/L W.H COKE-KERR R.A.F D.F.C Died 11/3/47

    Hi

    I am trying to find the circumstances regarding the death of 67712 F/L Walter Harold COKE-KERR R.A.F D.F.C LG 23/3/45 139 Sqn Navigator died 11 March 1947. Commemorated Runnymede Memorial Panel 289 Addenda.

    I can't find him listed as died in England or Wales, so maybe Scotland ?

    TIA

    I have recently heard from the son of Walter Coke-Kerr. His father died of cancer in America, and was buried in Jamacia.

    I presume he must of been suffering with cancer when he was still serving in the RAF in 1946, hence his war grave status.

    Hi Mark,
    I'm just interested to found out why would he be on the Runnymede Memorial, if it's known that he's buried in Jamaica.
    Regards......Alan.

    Hi everybody,

    I'm still awaiting more info, but as it's taken two years to get this far, I'm still happy with this progress (although more questions than answers).

    Walter COKE-KERR is listed on the Runnymede Memorial Addenda panels. These panels were installed after the monument was constructed in 1952. (Does anyone have a date for there construction)
