OEs Who Served and Died in World War II

Request for Information from Mike Martel (4952) for his book on Old Elizabethans who served and died in World War II.
Over a year ago Mike Martel appealed to OEs to contact him regarding any relative of theirs, who was in the armed forces and died in World War II. He had a very good response and gained much information as well as photographs of the individuals. He is nearing completion of the project, but would value anyone, who missed his early appeal, contacting him if they have any information.
He is particularly interested in any relative who has a photograph of the following Old Elizabethans all of whom were born in Guernsey.
