    Default Princess Mary's RAF Nursing Service

    I have just received the photo of the grave of Sister Annie Sylvia Ketley, age 43, PMRAFNS. Buried in St. Andrew Churchyard, Sandon, Essex. she died 28th February 1940.
    Would anybody have any indication as to the cause of her death?

    Also, as it is the first Princess Mary casualty that I have encounted would anybody have knowledge of any other Princess Mary casualties?

    Most grateful for any information.

    Tony

    Hi Tony, she died as a result of cerebro spinal fever in RAF Cosford Hospital. Do you know anything about her? Perhaps i could trouble you for a copy of the photo?

    Cheers, Tom

    Hi Tony, thanks for emailing the photos over. I can find 7 Princess Mary's Nurses who died during the war. Check out Geoff's CWGC search engine and change the unit to Princess Mary's RAF Nursing Service.
