    Hi

    HODGSON, George Barrow - AC2 - He was serving at RAF Turnhouse when he was killed in a motor accident whilst travelling as a passenger when the car left the Glasgow-Carlisle road and collided with a tree stump on an embankment.

    Thanks Andy, have edited Cameron's K9133 to read K9183. "MQ-R" according to the K File.
    Also edited L6618 to read L6613.
    These were quite possibly my typo errors.
    Thanks for highlighting the errors.
