    KJENNE, Kristian, Ty/Sub Lieutenant, RNR, DOW [CARDIFF WESTERN CEMETERY]

    His vessel was HMT Darnett Ness and he is listed as killed by bombing. I cannot see any information that the trawler was damaged in an air attack, so was he killed ashore? Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Steve

    Thanks Gents,

    Looks like he was a victim of an air raid.
