Tommy Hulme, RAF Veteran

I am posting from Dublin in Ireland.  I am looking up
a former RAF navigator from the Second World War, by
the name of Tommy W Hulme.  We understand that he came
from Marple Bridge originaly.

He and his pilot, an Australian, bailed out of their
stricken Beaufighter over central Ireland on the night
of March 17th, 1943.  They luckily survived and we
were recently able to locate the pilot, alive and
well in Australia, Mr. Richard Kakura.  

He informed us that Tommy had passed away on June 28
1995 at 81 years of age.

My reason for mailing is to see if by any small chance
any of you might know if any family or next of kin of
Tommy still live in Marple Bridge?  We have asked
Richard's relative to ask him if he knows of any kin
still alive.  Chances are of course that he did not
live in Marple Bridge after the war, however, one
never knows when they will strike it lucky!!

For some more details of the incident please visit my
friends website below.

I thank you for taking the time out to read this far,
and if by any chance as I say, anyone might know of
this man, I would dearly love to hear from you or
anyone one with information.

with sincere regards
Dennis Burke
