Re: Leading Aircraftman William Pretorius DUNLOP 155042 Died 5th Jan 1923 - Decipher
Can't help with deciphering, but his R.A.F. records on Fold3.com record:
Fell overboard Stm T. 'Braemar Castle" at sea 5.1.23 and officially accepted as having died (presumably drowned) on that date.
His middle name is recorded as Pretorius.
The Braemar Castle is recorded as having passed Perim Island (west of Aden) on January 1st on its way to Karachi from Southampton, as reported in the 'Movement of Liners' in the Westminster Gazette of Janaury 3rd 1923.
Researching R.A.F. personnel from the North East of England
