    Following In From The Cold Project's recent success in getting a number of RAF Ferry Command non commemorated casualties recognition by CWGC I have decided to investigate whether there are others.

    The criteria for these personnel is that

    a. They died on duty whilst flying an aircraft.

    b. Died of any cause outside of the country of their own nationality.

    If anyone knows of such a case please give me a shout.

    Have you cross referenced the Ocean Bridge Appendix with CWGC?

    Probably the starting point.
