    Default Aircraftman 1st Class Thomas Alfred Tonkin Died 2nd Jan 1929 363520

    Aircraftman 1st Class Thomas Alfred Died 2nd Jan 1929 363520 died of Hemoptysis aged 22

    However, I can't find out where - His death was registered in Eastleigh
    and his cas card http://fotos.crowfile.com/_fotos_/95...00071028.jpg?1 says '? Hospital Can anyone identify this ?

    I am 99% sure he died in RN Hospital as on Ancestry he has (I Think) a reference

    OK which leads me to ADM-104-111 My last file ends in #15 (this is also from National Archives) says Next Page 780 - But I have NOT got a 780 Page nor has National Archives !!

    Does Ancestry have any more pages for ADM-104-111 if indeed that is the reference above ??Thanks Paul

    TONKIN Thomas Alfred - ADM 104 on ancestry.co.uk records that he died at the Military Hospital, Netley, which is what the card says, by the look of it. He's recorded as being an A.C.1 and attached to H.M.S. Furious.

    His Form 434 is on FMP, and records that he was born on December 12th 1906 at Southampton. He entered the R.A.F. on January 30th 1923 as a Boy, aged 16 years and 41 days. He was reumustered in December 1924 as "A.A. (A.C.2 A.C.H.) u/t turner" and remustered again on January 7th 1926 as a turner, reclassified A.C.1.

    Regards

    Simon

    EDIT - you may want to put his surname in the thread title?

    Paul

    He's under "Piece 111: Registers of Reports of Deaths: Ships (1918-1930)" and on page 650 of the Register, under 'Various' and record number 134/29.
