WILLIAM H. S. BRADY, LT, USN
William Brady '38
Date of birth: unknown
Date of death: February 2, 1943
From the 1938 Lucky Bag:
William was lost on February 2, 1943, in the vicinity of Guadalcanal at the end of that campaign. He was a member of Escort Scouting Squadron (VGS) 11, which was operating as a land-based unit "throughout January and February 1943."
That squadron flew both TBF Avenger torpedo bombers and F4F-4 Wildcat; unable to determine which William may have been aboard or piloting. (VGS-11 is not recorded as losing an aircraft on that day.)
His wife was listed as next of kin.
Note one listing has LCDR; this was likely related to his being held in a missing status until December 1945. Not sure it was ever official. LT in other listings.
