    Alan,

    Appreciate that.

    Just as I suspected.

    AUS418139 F/Sgt (W.Op./Air Gnr.) Murray Gordon MARSHALL RAAF + 24-12-1943
    (Attached RAF Waterloo)

    Alan Storr has this to say:

    On the 19th December 1943, Flt Sgt Marshall, a Wireless Air Gunner, was in charge of a lorry on an organised bathing run at the time of the accident at 1700 hours. He was injured when the vehicle overturned at Benjguema near Freetown (East), and was admitted to No 51 General Hospital. He died of his injuries on the 24th December 1943, and is buried in the Freetown (King Tom) Cemetery, Sierra Leone. (Storr: Vol.8. p.455 of 484).

    LITCHFIELD (+ 19-12-1943) and WOOD (+ 20-12-1943), are also buried at Freetown (King Tom) Cemetery, along with T/67703 Sjt Alfred Philip Sidney TROTMAN RASC (+ 23-12-1943).

    I believe all of the above were involved in the lorry accident.

    Comments welcomed.

    Col.
