I think that you'll find that Private Curram died in October 1944 and that TB was recorded as a secondary cause of death

Philip

As 7 KOSB didn't commence their conversion to an Airlanding Battalion until late November 1943 how can those discharged prior to that date be classified as 1st Airborne casualties?

Agreed, on a side topic I can't recall the actual date of the 7th KOSB's transfer to the 1st A/L Brigade ever being confirmed.....but it was certainly late 1943/early 1944.....

Is the intention of this to do another Roll of Honour for 1st AB Div men killed or died from nautral causes 'not at Arnhem'?
If so don't forget all the men killed or died in France, North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Norway.....
