    Hello Paul

    1. Air Mechanic 3rd Class George Fredrick SMITH 278098 - there nothing on any of the Pension Cards, nor on his A.M. Form.

    2. Air Mechanic 3rd Class Herbert MOULTON 280019 - his A.M. Form records that he "Died at 4 Scot GH Glasgow fr. Broncho Pneumonia." The full name hospital is the 4th Scottish General Hospital, Stobhill, Glasgow:

    https://www.wartimememoriesproject.c...al.php?pid=936

    The last entry under Movements on the Form 175 is "Pal [or Pul?] Dept" to "N.W.A." on 13.9.18.

    3. Member (Private) HORTON Amy 5321 - nothing on her. Her Service Number on her Enrolment Form was written as 24208 but this was crossed out and replaced with 5231. It also has 'Immobile' written across the top.

    4. Air Mechanic 2nd Class Albert Edward SPARROW 50160 - his A.M. Form just has "B.E.F." under Movements. No unit recorded on the Pension Cards or on the Register of Effects. The A.M. Form records "Killed in Railway Accident, nr. St Quentin, France."
