Re: Aircraftman 2nd Class Alvin Jean Hurford

Thank You for clearing this one up, all the other site just stated "Unknown" or nothing at all, for his cause of death. Sad thing that no one will know why he went AWOL, and then shot himself, maybe the pressure of war, sadly we will never know !

Thank You Very Much Temujin !

Cheers

George

Re: Greetings from Warwickshire

Thank you for the info on Sgt W.J. Ashworth, if you know if he was posted to a non-flying job at RAF Station Linton, or was it a transfer to another Squadron ??? I see that there were a couple of RCAF Squadrons stationed there !
