Lieut. John Nutt, 3 Commando Brigade HQ,  died in a plane crash near Marseilles. 
 
He was aboard Dakota, KN557 of No 271 Sqn. RAF. Apparently the aircraft's position was fixed incorrectly and the pilot was given a wrong course to steer. The aircraft struck high ground at 1000 feet in poor weather conditions.
