Belgium - Seeking death certificate of Roderick Sutherland Gunn Mclean
« on: Sunday 22 October 17 19:06 BST (UK) »
Roderick Sutherland Gunn Mclean was born in Glasgow in April 1888 to Roderick Gunn Sutherland Mclean (Also Maclean) and Susanna Hislop Brown. He was with the RAF and was Gazetted on 26th October 1916 as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 29th Squadron Royal Air Force and promoted to Lieutenant on the 1st April 1918. Roderick was killed in October 1918 and is buried in Rumes, Arrondissement de Tournai, Hainaut, Belgium. Because he didn't die in Scotland I can't find a death certificate and I would love to find it somehow as I am interested in finding out the cause of death. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
