    Ronald William Baker 1295188 , attached to Number 4 Recruits Centre, died in his sleep at RAF Bridgnorth, and a post mortem and inquest found he had died of asphyxia consequent to an epileptic seizure whilst asleep.

    This Information was obtained from a GRO death certificate purchased by myself as there was no cause of death stated in his records.

    Baker is the penultimate RAF Airman to be accounted for in 1939-1940. 1940 now only has 4 unaccounted Airmen worldwide:

    Hashim 785703 , a locally enlisted RAF Airman in the Middle East has so far proved impossible to locate any information on, and also :

    Ninnis 78575

    West 787837

    Hungerford 103683

    All 3 being SAAF Airmen who have also so far proved untraceable are the final unaccounted remaining from 1939-1940

    Ninnis is Joseph 'Joey' Ninnis born Cornwall Qtr2 1928

    I think whole family moved to South Africa in early 20th Century

    This is his Probate Death Notice = Shame no cause on it - You can see he married twice (Divorced once)

    https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61...A1%3AQPJX-QRF3

    His Widow married an RAF Serviceman in 1947
