Now I didn't know that.  My dad loved Al Bowlly's music, I hadn't realised he'd been killed during the war.  Mum and dad had the DJ play some of his music at their golden wedding anniversary party.  I can understand why now.

How about Glen Miller?  His plane went missing and never found when he boarded the plane at Twinwood Airfield in Bedforshire in December 1944. It still remains a mystery on what happened.
