A group in Chester plans to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the passing of Margery Annie Tucker, a member of the Women's Royal Air Force, who was killed on 31 August 1918.  Margery lost her life on her way to nearby RFC Shotwick (RAF Sealand), where she was engaged as a Driver on "war work".   Margery, who was unmarried, was the first woman to be buried with military honours in the city, and is commemorated by a CWGC headstone on a high point in the cemetery overlooking the River Dee.
We would be delighted to hear from family members, most likely descendants of her brother, the Rev Basil Roberts Tucker, who served in Liverpool, Chester, villages near Bridgwater (Somerset), before retiring  to East Wittering (Sussex) where he died in 1963.  Please PM me if you know of, or better still, are a member of the family.
