    Iím sure he has some wrong in the far east . C V Windmill 938547 was definitely electrocuted accidentally at RAF seletar . I think , although Iíve not yet found it my jumbled notes for that area, that 938539 G Bamford, is incorrect too and that they have both been caught in a shotgun approach ?

    I agree with the possibility Malcolm and had wondered myself, but I haven't come across it in my notes yet

    UPGRADE to Frank Crighton 1352289. he suffered an epeleptic fit, having concealed his epilepsy when he joined the RAF 2.5 years before his deat, and died two days later in hospital of status epilepticus. It was considered that his epilepsy may have been mild but the stress of his wife being dangerously ill may have triggered a stronger attack
