    James Bett Anderson age 21 is returned for 1942 in Stirlingshire, Scotland - I didn't try to narrow down the district.

    Thanks Dave. Yes, same Larbert Hospital as for DUNMORE Master T8780. The aircraft was in my files with ARNOLD killed (source: 'They Shall Grow Not Old') and DUNMORE injured. Thanks as well for link to Dunmore's date of death; was still on my 'unaccounted' list.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Henk,

    Gimbert is "dangerously ill" in RCAF casualty list no. 154 issued 6 January 1941 and "dead from natural causes" in list no. 169 issued 23 January. No unit given.
