Casualty Details | CWGC In the context of “Operation Varsity” I am currently researching the circumstances of the death of Driver Victor Stanley Coles, 716 Airborne Light Coy, RASC (Service No. 14656349). He died on March 27th, 1945 – Long after the fighting on the LZs and DZs was over. Engagements on that day took place around the edges of the airborne landing area – quite far from the area where he was killed. He was buried in a single grave, grid reference 191474 – that is on the southern tip of LZ “P”. I marked the spot on the two maps attached by a small red dot. My working hypothesis at the moment is: He was trying to recover material/supplies and could have been killed by … a mine? Unexploded ordnance? An accident?
