    Peter Carey Beesley 411100 | attached to RAF Kirmington | had attended a dance at RAF Killingholme and was hitching a ride to his station in an RAF water tender when it overturned and crashed though a hedge at Habrough. The driver, Corporal Dennis Ward and F/SGT Jack Gordon Frankton and LAC J.A. Craigs escaped serious injuries but Beesley was trapped in the cab and asphyxiated by the bodywork
