Lt Clinkscales was later killed in a B-29 which was rammed by a Japanese
aircraft over Yawata, Japan.
Henry Godman passed away in October 1996 in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
Colonel Sherr was killed in an air crash while taking-off from Calcutta
in September 1943. Earlier he had been evacuated from Corregidor with
General MacArthur because he was a master of cryptanalysis. He was subsequently
a major factor in the creation of the Central Bureau codebreaking outfit.
