    Richard Bixby was definitely a corporal in the RAF POLICE. I have him listed as killed by enemy action in April 1945. I'm pretty sure he wasn't shot down in Halifax L9605 in May 1942 dying 3 years later

    Richard Bibby 1133814 , attached to the RAF police 83 Group , was seriously wounded in action at Loccum, dying of his wounds in Number 52 MFH at Wunsdorf

    He definitely did NOT die in Halifax L9605 as stated in this database
