Sgt William Bell died 29th June, 1943, and is buried in the Alamein
This date suggests the possibility that he may have taken part in a raid against the Messina marshalling yards where two aircraft were lost.
Lee Anderson has contributed a letter that Sgt Bell wrote to Lee's grandmother the month before he was killed. This poignant document gives a picture of life in the North Africa campaign together with typical concerns of the airmen.
