Died on active service
Lieutenant 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.
