|411118 - Unaccounted airmen - 18-11-1941||Hi Henk
Cunningham,47, registered at Cardiff, S Wales
Webb, 52, registered at Wenlock, Shropshire,this has been a regular place to register deaths at Cosford Hospital, the accident at Whitchurch, if there were deaths, would be recorded at Whitchurch which had an office
King,27, registered at Devon Central,
Silcock,32, registered at Buckrose, E Yorkshire
The Blenheim,L1353, is in Warner with 2 fatalities, both registered at Ampthill, Bedfordshire the right area for the crash site and Cranfield where they took off, Sgt M Cuke,23, and Sgt J Green,24.
None of the rest came up on the register but I see you have 3 possible incidents in Scotland and they may be involved with them
