|401114 - Unaccounted airmen - 14-11-1940||Hi Henk
Few,20 is registered at Lambeth, S Central London just S of the Thames. Roberts,30 is registered at Coventry but I didn't find Garraway. If memory is right 14/11/40 was the night of the Air raid that devasted Coventry. Steele,18, is registered at Stratford so if you meant Whitchurch Warks.(Warwickshire) it could put him in the Hart, K4769
