    Name: MAGOG, JAMES DOWSEY
    Initials: J D
    Nationality: United Kingdom
    Rank: Corporal
    Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
    Unit Text: 5001 Airfield Construction Sqdn.
    Age: 27
    Date of Death: 03/01/1945
    Service No: 945622
    Additional information: Son of James William and Mary Ada Dowsey-Magog, of Hendon, Sunderland, Co. Durham; husband of Gwendoline Daphne Patricia Magog.
    Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
    Grave/Memorial Reference: 12. E. 1.
    Cemetery: HEVERLEE WAR CEMETERY

    His name is listed as DIED ON ACTIVE SERVICE in the RAF Casualty lists in Flight Magazines so I would take that to mean natural causes or a vehicle accident, swimming accident. But not a death from enemy action.

    What way is his grave stone spelled?
