So if anyone will be not able to provide you particular serial you can make your try and check each of these serials which may fit - I suppose it will be not so many as some of them will be so old (Kxxxx) and some of the last so new to fit the date.

|May 1941||Moving on
1. 65 Sqn lost two pilots on 2 May, bothe registered in Dunmow: -
ROSS, DAVID GORDON (82429) RAFVR - age 37
GILBERT, HUMPHREY TRENCH DFC (40530) RAFO - age 22
I have only found one aircraft loss, BL372, can anyone advise who was flying it and what happened to the other pilot?
2. In TSGNO, MACDONALD, DONALD CHARLES (R/69236) RCAF - age Unknown is shown as being killed in Hudson JM632 of No 59 Sqn, however, this serial doesn't appear to have been allocated, what aircraft was he in?
3. 23 May - 80 Sqn lost two Hurricanes, BE339 or BE707, they also lost two pilots: -
SCOTT, WILLIAM ROBERT (R/60429) RCAF - age 23
HOWARD, JOHN JAMES VICTOR (R/1828) RCAF - age 20
Does anyone know who was flying in each aircraft?
4. DESOURDY, VINCENT GEORGE (J/6400) RCAF - age 24 and possibly LEE, GEOFFREY ERIC (922541) RAFVR - age 28 were killed on 26 May with 235 Sqn. According to TSGNO they were in T4533, but this was a batch of cancelled Beaufighters, so doews anyone know what they were actually flying?
5. The following two were probably killed in the mid-air collision of Spitfires, K9951 and P8249 on 27 May, does anyone know who wa sflying which?
SKYRME, ERIC (656663) RAF - age 20
