S/Ldr (Pilot/Instr.) Michael A. AYLMER - 35045 - RAF (from S.Africa), buried Upavon Church Cem., Wiltshire, and

F/O (Pilot) Edward K. RAYSON - 70561, buried Brookwood Cem. (The London Necropolis), Woking, Surrey,

both killed on active service.

They may have been casualties on:

Harvard I - N7182 - CFS - flew into ground at night at Marden near Marlborough, Wiltshire,

or

Oxford II - N6434 - 15 FTS - spun into ground near Lossiemouth.

For N6434 I've already as casualties:

F/Sgt J.B. MOORE - 364144

and probably (request for confirmation):

P/O (Pilot u/t) Eric W. ALLISON - 42671 - RAF (from Canada).

Regards and thanks for your help.

Henk.

Henk - I confirm Acting P/O Allinson was the student in N6434, cause was attributed to loss of control during the blackout.
