During the course of World War 2 forty seven personnel lost their lives while serving with 198 Squadron RAF, forty six of whom are classified as killed in action. Although the Squadron was disbanded in September 1945 it would appear, from the information given below, that the collective figure of Squadron personnel losses should read forty eight.
Sgt Alexander McAfee RAFVR, Service Number 1017565, served with 198 Squadron RAF during the war as a Fitter but following the Squadron's disbandment in September 1945 it was thought that he had either returned to civilian life or been posted to another unit or squadron. However, according to the Commonwealth War Grave's (CWGC) Casualty Records he died on 9th January 1947 at the age of thirty five while still in service with the Royal Air Force, his unit text is given as 198 Sqdn.
