It would appear that Sgt Jowett was "Killed on Active Service".

Association Researcher (Colin Cripps) believes that Sgt Jowett may have been killed when Wellington, serial P9235, from No.1 Air Armament School crashed shortly after take off at Louth near Legbourne, apparently colliding with a hill.

The Wellington crashed with only the pilot on board.
F/Sgt FT Jowett (and Sgt A Young) were killed by falling from a train carriage on the 7th of September 1942.





The death certificate states that the cause was "laceration of the brain and multiple injuries caused through falling from a railway carriage on the LMS Railway Company".
