Re: LAC Joseph Anthony Dees Appleby, RAFVR, died 20 November 1944 Can anyone assist with information about a WW2 casualty from my home town of Whitehaven, Cumbria who I have been trying to research for a 'Roll of Honour', please? According to the CWGC record he was cremated although he has been given a memorial headstone in the cemetery at Harare, Zimbabwe. Does anyone have a photograph of the headstone by any chance? He was LAC J.A.D. Appleby, known as 'Tony', RAFVR, S/No 984702, who died, aged 33, in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) after a long illness on 20 November 1944. This chap is commemorated on the WW2 war memorial of his former school, Whitehaven Grammar School and was a member of one of the prominent families of the district although there was not much in the way of an obituary in the local newspaper at the time of his death. He was the only son of Joseph Appleby and Ethel Appleby (nee Dees) of Whitehaven, Cumberland. CWGC commemoration: Name: APPLEBY, JOSEPH ANTHONY DEES Rank: Leading Aircraftman Service No: 984702 Date of Death: 20/11/1944 Age: 33 Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve Grave Reference: Cremation Memorial stone. Cemetery: HARARE CREMATION MEMORIAL Additional Information:Son of Joseph and Ethel Appleby, of Whitehaven, Cumbria. (Cremated at Harare). ............... Thanks in advance if anyone can assist.
