400921 - Unaccounted airmen - 21-9-1940Hello LAC Percy CHAPMAN - 902898 - the Grave Registration Report Form records him as being with 'F.T.S.' AC2 George S. EVERETT - 1260103 - the Grave Registration Report Form records him as being with 13 M.U. Sgt (Pilot) Edgar A.J. KEIGHLEY - 745306 - the Grave Registration Report Form records him as being with 20 O.T.U. The Statutory Death Register on the Scotland's People Website records that he died at 7.30 a.m. at Grays Hospital, Elgin, the result of extensive burns to the body, which had occurred some 5 days previously. AC2 Robert T.McW. STREIGHT - 976216 - the Grantham Journal of September 27th 1940 reported the following: [I]WENT INTO PATH OF BUS Airman's Tragic End at Grantham The circumstances surrounding the death of a young airman, Robert Thomas MacWilliam Streight, who was fatally injured when knocked down by a bus late on Friday night, were related to the Grantham Coroner, Mr. A. C. Malim, at an inquest at the Guildhall on Monday. Aircraftman Rowland Hall said he and a friend were walking up St. Catherine's Road towards Harrowby Road. Crossing the road to catch a bus at the top they heard a screech of brakes. "I saw the silhouette of a person and the lighted end of a cigarette," continued witness. "It was very dark at that spot and the figure appeared to go right in front of an approaching bus. I noticed then that the cigarette flew through the air." Evidence by Flight Sergeant Rideout showed that deceased was a keen boxer, was sober and quite happy a few minutes before the accident. Dr. Jack A. Taylor, resident medical officer at Grantham Hospital, said Streight was dead on arrival at the hospital in the ambulance. The coroner, returning a verdict of "accidental death," said no blame was attached to the driver, and it remained a mystery as to why the man stepped into the road.[/I] Regards Simon ....Read More.wwrsimon on 19th September 2017 07:27:37
