Recommended Posts

REQUEST No 1

The CWGC site shows that 61214 W Woodward was serving with 35 Squadron at the time of his death (which I think may be incorrect). Does anyone have information on cause of death that would help resolve this matter?

 

Response: Pneumonia whilst on leave pending demob. Attributable to war

 

CLOSED

FMP has a service record which says 35th and also that casualty card destroyed as no entries on it.

He was discharged from France on 12-2-1919 and then this (which you may have seen?)

Nature of Death : Pneumonia whilst on leave pending demob. Attributable to war.
Cemetery/Memorial : Wiltshire United Kingdom CALNE (CURZON STREET) CEMETERY F.36
Place of Death : United Kingdom

REQUEST No 4

Cadet J Milward is shown as being on strength of No 35 Squadron at the time of his death (06/08/1918). Has anyone got any information on the cause of death and are there any thoughts on whether he could have been on strength of the squadron at that time?

 

Response: Airmen Died in the Great War  1914-1919   Cadet John Milward. Killed Whilst Flying. 35 Training Depot Station, Pilot of DH6 C7253.

It may need some translation to make sense!

Re. REQUEST No 2

 

Thanks for the service record extracts for Colligan and Anthony. I am assuming that the SW in the first one refers to "Shell Wounds" but I wondered if anyone can decipher the first line of the second record starting 26/04/1918 Wounded ..........

Re. POST 5 R Peacock

I note that CA Uren was also killed in action with 35 Squadron on the same day .... so I am guessing there was some kind of incident on that day (21st March 1918)
