    Default Unaccounted airman - 22-7-1942 (Middle East)

    Looking for unit and possibly cause of death of Cpl Arthur J. DOHERTY - 538246 (from Canada), commemorated on Column 263 of the Alamein Memorial.

    Regards and thanks,
    Henk.

    The GRO RAF List gives him as:
    DOHERTY Arthur J CORPORAL 538246 HMT ORDUNA 1942 4 306

    Was he on that spreadsheet I sent you some weeks ago of HMS and HMT?

    Must have been lost overboard perhaps as the ship seems to have survived the war from Google searching.

    Thanks Dennis. Yes his name is on the spreadsheet. What means: 4 306 after 1942 ?

    Dennis,
    ...............or died/was killed on board HMT Orduna and his body committed to the deep !
    In both cases his name must have been in the ships log book.

    Henk.
