Looking for leads on Henry Cousens, particularly date and place of death.

Birth: 2 May 1912, Esher, Surrey, United Kingdom;
Death: Unknown in South Africa or Kenya ;

After 1924 his mother remarried a Mr Meyer and the family moved to Rhodesia. Henry worked in the copper mining industry before the war, was a pilot in Europe during World War II. 1945 he wrote he wanted to return to Rhodesia, but the family believe he settled in South Africa or Kenya instead. We were told he was in poor health much of his life - had had spinal meningitis - and died fairly young after World War II.
