    A gentlemen I work with showed me a photo album his father F/O Kenneth Bendall kept during his time as a pilot with #54 Squadron and #6 Squadron. He was kind enough to let me make copies of this incredible personal account. Upon reading this thread I recognized the name of F/Sgt Frank Harris and I went back to the photos and found this photo taken by Mr. Kenneth Bendall.

    Hello

    Sgt Harold G. BUCK - 511358 - the CWGC website and the National Probate Calendar record his death as 26th March 1943, and states that he died at the Sanatorium, Kelling, Norfolk.

    AC2 Percy G. RICHINGS - 1658986 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he died at 4.00 p.m. at Astley Ainslie Institute, Edinbrugh, due to TB.

    Regards

    Simon

    * The CWGC quotes March's unit as No.262 Sqn., which l think should read No.162 Sqn.

    Sergeant George Albert MARCH 955584
    Confirmed via http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...mageViewerLink 162 Sqn ORB that March was killed during a night fighter attack on a Wellington
