1.Leslie Digby FOXTON,, aged 22, who died in the Korean War on 6 October 1951. I have no details of how or where he was killed.
2. Geoffrey Roy URQUHART-PULLEN, aged 26, who died during the Suez War on 6 November 1956.He was the navigator/photographer aboard an RAF Canberra, conducting a clandestine recce over Syria. They were attacked by Syrian interceptors (flying British-supplied Gloster Meteor NF11s!). The pilot and copilot escaped and parachuted safely, but U-P was killed, nobody seems quite sure how.
If anyone knows of any others (or has any further details on Foxton) please let me know. Even just a name would get me started. From the numbers of Old Blues known to have served since 1947 it seems reasonable to guess that there might have been one or two more deaths.
Please post any answers here so that others may be able to add more info.
