The 9th Battalion casualty I believe refers to Lance Corporal Edward Hull. he was
accidentally shot at the airfield where the 9th Battalion emplaned at Broadwell
airfield. He was taken to hospital in Oxford, but died on D-Day. I believe his case that
he is D-Day's first casualty rests on the fact that he was fatally wounded on June 5th,
even though he stayed alive till for several hours later.
